    Blueprint, a coaching program that teaches aspiring entrepreneurs how to build
    a laptop-only business in the lucrative business and equipment finance niche.

    her stay in Malaysia (a country Paul won’t even visit because of a Joaquin
    Phoenix movie) from one month to an entire year. They also talk about her
    family’s struggles with drug addiction, rideshare adventures in defying local
    transit laws, and how massive Malaysia sometimes feels like a little sister to tiny
    Singapore.

    finance entrepreneurship to see if Business Finance Blueprint is right for you.

Love This Show

Was lucky to be a guest on the show and had a fantastic time. Paul is an incredible host and puts on a wonderful production, not only that but he is a funny and genuinely cool guy. We had an authentic and insightful conversation. I've become a listener now as well.
