Like the fact that you interview a lot of people who are millionaires, not almost billionaires. Most interviews with the uber successful are just not relatable. They've long forgotten about the messy start up phase. I feel like I get a lot of relatable conversation that is honest, even if not always flattering. Refreshing.

Austin Peek

Scott Hall Thanks, that's what I was going for. When I kept hearing the Billionaire stories over & over, it seems like it's impossible to get there. Hopefully the stories from the entrepreneurs on our show seem more attainable & then you can level up to be a Billionaire later 😉.
