“Emmanuel Eleyae recommended this podcast to me and I was absolutely hooked after my first listen. I left my job in February to focus on running my own businesses and I had hit a **mind block** in March. Listening to Steve got me out of my slump. He does so many things right and is such a likable, relatable guy. Just a few of many things I appreciate:
-Real examples of people like me that I could relate to who weren’t making it —-> then we’re making it AND the tactical step-by-steps of how they did that
-A variety of perspectives and business models + niches that really show you the breadth of what is possible, while simultaneously underlining the strategies that are consistent about all of them
-He isn’t afraid to ask straight up questions! No platitudes or sweeping generalizations get tossed around because when it gets to that territory, he pushes his guests to be real...giving us the real meat we always want interviewers to dig into!!!!
Plus, he’s a fellow Asian!!!! There aren’t enough Asian Americans running new innovative (non-inherited) businesses for many reasons including familial expectations, etc, and he touches on this too. I feel especially seen and understood with his podcasts which gives me such support that I cannot understate.
Podcasts like How I Built This are great for aspirations and inspiration, but not for actually moving the needle in your day-to-day - and especially when you’re first starting out. This fills the gap.
Thank you, Steve!!!!”
