I love this podcast! Regardless of what type of business venture you have, the amount of information and tips I’ve learned in just a few episodes is unmeasurable. Also the host asks the perfect questions. I find that just when I have a question during an episode, Felix asks it almost immediately after! Only suggestion - I’d love to hear more episodes about multi vendor marketplaces.

Very good
