Jamie Lebow ,

Best motivational podcast out there!

This review has been a long time coming. I started listening to Niyi’s podcast when covid started and have listened to every episode once and sometimes two times. His advice is solid and the way he speaks gets me so fired up to take action, that I have literally had harder workouts, taken action on my business and life I wouldn’t have had I not listened to it. I’ve always been a motivated person but hearing others set a higher standard (most people don’t) has been the fuel I needed to make some changes. I know he’s taken a break from recording now (so sad!) but I expect it’s to grow in other ways and I feel lucky that he provides such valuable content, consistently, for so long. I bought and read (I never read) the book Mastery because of him and that in itself fueled me even more. While I don’t think I’ll do coaching just yet, i think in the future I will have to, not only as a Thanks, but because he is go-getter one should always try to surround themselves by.

BEAST MODE

Thanks Niyi, I’m a 15 year old soccer player that hopes to one day go pro. I was super dedicated as a younger kid because i was naturally the best, but as I got older I slowly saw myself falling behind. It lead to my ultimately not believing in myself and I took a year off of sports and got chubby. Then puberty hit and I noticed i started getting taller and stronger. By listening to your podcast it really has started to awaken my true KILLER INSTINCT. Or at least I hope it does lol, you see I'm still struggling a little with the mental part. So thanks for your amazing podcast and I hope to thank you in person one day. -Trey Hill

Thank god for Niyo!

Listening to this podcast has helped me change my mindset and turn me into a straight beast. I don’t even play sports, I run my own company. But this podcast is just as valuable to business owners as it is to athletes. Nobody in my field will outwork me, that’s why ima keep winning. Niyo keep that content coming, I wake up every morning and this the only thing I listen to! BEAST MODE . I DONT WANT NO SUCKAS AROUND ME. LETS GET IT!!!!!!!!!
