Ellen hiker ,

Great and interesting content

I like the upbeat prospective on business and always outlining that it’s up to a person to be successful. Thank you for staying positive in this strange world. Great topics and agree with others that it’s a good start to learn about the business, sacrifices and rewards.

A Free MBA For Startups

I have listened to TWIST since I found myself at LAUNCH festival back in 2012 or 2013. I had very little idea about startups at the time and not sure how I even ended up at LAUNCH (although the free ticket I somehow stumbled across definitely helped).

Since that day I have gone to college for 2 years, spent 4 years in corporate America, and now FINALLY I’m making the leap to an early stage startup!

The confidence to make this transition is partially based on the perspective and tactical knowledge that I have taken from this podcast. Thank you Jason!

Great group of people - love it.

Hi guys, I am a big fan of all four of you. I discovered this podcast just yesterday. And I listened to E5 while my morning run today. Everything was perfect except for one little thing. It broke my heart when the group laughed while somebody was mentioning that a democratic presidential nominee can’t pronounce a word. I just wanted to share with you guys he is a PWS. And being a PWS by myself, I know how much it hurts if somebody laughs at you. Anyways great show. I still love you guys. Keep it rolling.
