Joining me as somebody who I’ve been talking to via email for a while, and I’ve wanted to have on here and I’m so excited that he said yes to an interview. So many entrepreneurs that I’ve interviewed had little businesses when they were kids. They’re usually so freaking proud of then that they can’t stop telling my producers about it.

We’ll teach them how to do it and we give them everything that they need.” Scott Donnell is the founder of MyFirstSale, which gives kids the life skills and confidence to sell their products in a safe, friendly online environment.

Great Interview! I actually interviewed the other Co-Founder (Kenny) a few weeks ago on my podcast... On your show, Travis comes across as a much more likeable guy. If any one wants to check out the dark side, then check out my interview with Kenny. The podcast is called Millionaire Interviews & it's Episode 105... (Hope you don't mind the plug Andrew...)

The best interviewer. Not scared to ask very uncomfortable questions. Very informative and real.

an okay show. the host constantly interrupts the guest while they're explaining something and also interrupts them with his sponsor spots. They are taking time out of their day to talk to you, you should respect that.
