I have really enjoyed listening the your podcasts. I am looking forward to every new podcasts that comes out. It has been very interesting to hear how others have been successful with their passions.

Hands of Hur ,

The Light Phone

I really love the concept behind this channel. Quick intros to amazing people and their vision for business. Episode 5 of Season One is my favorite. A startup that's actually DOING something creative about what everyone intuitively knows to be true...we spend too much time on our gadgets and are starting to resemble them more than our parents. Their "Light Phone" is an incredible idea. Wouldn't have known about this whole thing without "The 5-Minute Founder." Thanks, Shawn!
