Dive into the mindset of success

This podcast is incredible. Adam's interview style really allows guests to naturally pull back the layers of their story and experience to give us a glimpse into their inner world. As someone who's been on both sides of the entrepreneurial roller coaster - I highly recommend this podcast for anyone who wants to learn the mental models needed to succeed - and navigate the natural highs and lows along the way. Thanks Adam for bringing this show to the world!
