  • I love pods, specifically business pods. Not because they actually give me the “answer,” so to speak, but because they inspire me and get my creative juices flowing. I kind of hate the term “creative juices,” but whatever.

    Anyway, here are a few of my favorites. What I like about these is that they’re not boring, and they’re a mix of technology and blue-collar. Like, you don’t have to be a genius to get rich.


    My First Million – Hosted by Sam Parr and Shaan Puri. By far, my favorite business pod of all time. Hat tip to Ray Hernandez for turning me on to this.

    Contrarian Thinking with Codie Sanchez – Codie Sanchez shares her insights on investing and building wealth. This chick is just badass. I found out about her from My First Million.

    Andrew Wilkinson Podcast – Andrew Wilkinson shares his experiences on building and acquiring businesses.

    Where It Happens with Greg Isenberg – Greg Isenberg discusses the future of work, creativity, and entrepreneurship.

    The Game with Alex Hormozi – Alex Hormozi discusses business strategies and scaling companies.

    Noah Kagan Presents – Noah Kagan, the founder of AppSumo, interviews successful entrepreneurs.

    There are a few that didn’t make my condensed list but let me know what you think and if there are some pods I should be checking out!

  • This is a place for me to share the random shit I would typically send to the homies via a text message or maybe in Slack. Very informal.

    I have multiple homie text groups, and sometimes, I just want to share some shit I think is interesting, funny, or useful in life. It’s also acting as an archive, of these things, for me.

    Stuff like cool products, interesting shows, art, investment stuff, business crap I’m interested in, or even setting up a living trust kinda crap that we were never taught.

    It might be once a day or more, maybe 1 per week. Hopefully, no less than that, but my track record is shitty. However, that’s also why I’m keeping the bar low for myself.

    I would love dialogue. Hit me up in the comments.

Don’t be such a wuss.

That title doesnt have anything to do with anything but it’s not bad click bait. There’s actually no reason for any of this copy but it was a part of the template so I just started writing shit.

“Steve is the smartest guy I know and stuff like that.”
