Great, first-person commentary on the trials of going out on your own.

I am an avid listener of entrepreneurial / financial independence podcasts and am so happy these two have put this together.

It’s refreshing to hear the ins and outs of entrepreneurship from those that are currently putting themselves out there, with as much on the line as their audience.

Erik and Murray are a great pair of smart, empathetic podcasters and I find it very easy to map their own experiences to my own life.

Looking forward to hearing the rest of their library, as well as any future episodes they put out!!
