Text A Lawyer CEO ,

Excellent podcast. Great mentor. Fantastic investor.

I will admit my bias; I'm E890 Text A Lawyer. But Jason has gone out of his way to help me, from inviting my cofounder and I to closed sessions to free twitter advice. Plus, he's always fun to watch on CNBC!!!

Eagerly Waiting for my upcoming chapters

As a long-time listener to This Week In Startups, I can’t help but feel as if the journey that I’ve taken while listening to this podcast will result in a made for TV movie or my own NY TImes best seller.
The first chapter was me learning what it meant to be in the startup community.
The second chapter taught me how to offer my best value when working with local startups. The companies I worked with were either starting or trying to raise money with investors. As a result, I helped businesses raise multiple millions of dollars.
The third chapter would be my transition to becoming an accredited investor.
Chapter four (today), I’m now part of Jason’s syndicate and I’m awaiting to invest in my first startup.
I know chapter 5 will be fun as I start my investment portfolio with Jason and the team.
Chapter 6 may be difficult as I enter the challenging 3-5 year lull period but I’ll be ready because this podcast prepared me for the challenges that are looming.
I’m most excited for some of the next chapters!

None of this would be possible if it wasn’t for Jason, his knowledge, his willingness to share and for This Week In Startups. Jump on board, it will change your life! If this podcast doesn’t change your life, you need to pay better attention and try again. Thank you Jason!
