Rank #1: How To Conquer Your Greatest Fears…With Akshay Nanavati

Podcast cover
Read more

One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned over the past year, is that the size of your struggles, is proportional to the size of the gift you have to offer the world as you overcome them.

In other words, our biggest challenges in life can be turned into an opportunity to grow, and then to give, if we’re brave enough to face them head-on and conquer them.

Well, the gentleman you’re about to meet today is one of the most incredible living examples of this philosophy that I’ve ever met.

His name is Akshay Nanavati and his story is so amazing that I’m not even going to give you a preview of what’s to come in today’s episode because I don’t want to ruin it for you.

But the fact that the Dali Lama wrote the forward to his book, should tell you all you need to know about this man’s challenges in life, and what he’s turned them into.

We all have challenges and we all have fears in life. Those are not optional when it comes to being human, but how you choose to respond to them, is.

Rank #2: How To Build The Biggest Personal Brand In Your Industry... with Jack Canfield

Podcast cover
Read more

About 20 years ago, around the age of 18, I remember walking through the aisles of my local bookstore, and buying a copy of my very first personal development book. I had no idea what I was looking for, but I knew that I needed to start thinking differently about my future.

As I scoured the shelves, one book grabbed my attention. It was called, The Aladdin Factor, and it was written by a guy named Jack Canfield.

That book set me down the path of personal growth and development that has shaped my life ever since.

Since then, Jack has become of the of the biggest personal brands in self-help.

His Chicken Soup For The Soul book series has sold over 500,000,000 copies around the world.

And now that I had him on the phone for an hour, I wanted to ask him how he did it…

When you look out at the world of personal development, there are thousands of speakers and authors who come and go.

And yet only a handful have been able to make the kind of impact that Jack has…

Tony Robbins, Brene Brown, John Maxwell, Wayne Dyer, Mark Victor Hansen, and Jim Rohn are some of the names that come to mind.

Why?

What have these individuals done in order to become the biggest names in their industry over the span of decades?

How can you or I become the next Jack Canfield?

Well that’s what we’re going to find out here today straight from the man himself.

Rank #3: Find Your Why, And You’ll Find Your Purpose… with Simon Sinek

Podcast cover
Read more
In 2009, Simon Sinek wrote a little book called, “Start With Why, How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone To Take Action.”, and in that book he starts with a fundamental question…     Why are some people and organizations more innovative, more influential, and more profitable than others? Why do some command greater loyalty from customers and employees, and even among the successful, why are so few able to repeat their success over and over?   People like Martin Luther King Jr., Steve Jobs, and the Wright Brothers had little in common, but they all started with WHY. They realized that people won't truly buy into a product, service, movement, or idea until they understand the WHY behind it.   That book turned into a movement.   Today Simon’s two TED talks have more than 40 million views, and the book has sold more copies every single year for the past nine years, than the previous year.   Well today Simon joins us to talk about the process they use to help leaders like you and I, discover our Why, and effectively communicate it to the world.   If you are feeling lost, if you are feeling unsure, or uninspired about your life, your work, or your future, start with why… If you own a company and want to create a world-class brand with an incredibly loyal customer base, start with why…   And if you need help figuring out your why, you can start with this episode of Self Made Man.

Rank #4: I Got Hypnotized And Here’s What Happened…Elliot Roe

Podcast cover
Read more

Well gang, I have some pretty big news for you…

About two months ago, we finally figured out what caused my brain injury last June, and it was something completely unexpected.

Now we’re going to save that entire story for its own dedicated episode where my doctor will be joining me as a guest to break down everything that happened, and how I’m recovering from it, but in the meantime, I get to share one of the most valuable healers that I’ve had a chance to work with over the past year.

When the injury first occurred, I had no idea what had happened, or what caused it. I thought it must have been stress-related, and that 15 years of business stress, caffeine, and adrenaline just burned out my nervous system.

So I pursued any and every kind of therapy that I could that addressed that part of the body and mind, and one of those therapies was hypnosis.

A few friends of mine recommended that I reach out to our guest today. His name is Elliot Roe, and he is one of the most well-respected hypnotherapists in the world.

His clients include Olympic athletes, UFC fighters, professional poker players, some of the most successful entrepreneurs you can think of, behind billion-dollar companies.

Now I had never been hypnotized in my life, and frankly, I thought it was kind of hokey, but I was desperate and willing to try absolutely anything that might help.

So I signed on with Elliot as a client and holy smokes…

This stuff absolutely works.

At the end of the day, our outside world and the life that we’ve built for ourselves is a reflection of the subconscious programming we’ve internalized.

All of us have baggage from our lives that create subconscious thoughts and stories, that affect our decisions from that point forward. And the really crappy part is that you’re not even aware that these stories exist. They are invisible to your conscious mind, which makes them incredibly hard to identify and then change.

Well, hypnosis is the solution to that problem. It’s one of the few ways that we can tap into our subconscious programming, identify thoughts and stories that are holding us back, and then rewrite them.

Going through this process has been one of the most incredible experiences of my life, and I’m truly excited that I get to introduce you guys to Elliot, and to this technology today.

If you’re ready to give your brain and your inner programming a major upgrade, this is an incredibly effective way to do it.

Rank #5: How To Make A Fortune on AirBnb, Without Owning A Single Home… with Brian Page

Podcast cover
Read more
There are very, very few business opportunities out there that truly impress me these days, but what you’ll learn about today from our guest, Brian Page, is one of them.   A few years ago Brian found himself at a point in life where he needed a plan B.   His background was in real estate, but after the market crashed, he found himself on the sidelines.   As many people have over the past few years, he started looking into AirBnb, and saw a huge opportunity there, but there was one big problem…   He didn’t have the funds needed to buy a house that he could list on the platform.   I’ve often thought about buying and renting out properties on AirBnb as well, but I don’t want to spend a substantial amount of money to acquire them.   Well that’s when Brian came up with a solution that rocked my world…   Instead of buying properties, he rented them, and then placed them on the short-term markets of AirBNB, Home Away, and VRBO.   Each home might cost him $2,000 to rent, but he was making $6,000/mo from his AirBnb guests.   Within a year he’d acquired control of dozen properties, all of which were making him income, and he didn’t have to invest a dime into any of them.   It is without a doubt, one of the most brilliant, and exciting opportunities I’ve ever seen, where you can literally build a real estate empire within a few years, without any kind of seed capital, or without any risk exposure to the markets.   And the best part, is that Brian has automated the entire process. Everything, from cleaning and servicing the homes, to wowing his guests, is outsourced.   He can literally run his empire from his cell phone on a beach, and today he’s going to share the entire strategy with you.   If you’re currently looking for a way to replace your income, and potentially build a massive income stream, this is the single best opportunity to do so, that I’ve seen in years.

Rank #6: A Blueprint For Building Massive Wealth… with Kris Krohn

Podcast cover
Read more

The biggest problem when it comes to building wealth, is that there isn’t one clear-cut way to do it.

If you ask a successful, rich individual what the best way is to become wealthy, all of them will give you a slightly different answer.

And that’s tough because it creates confusion. Who is right, and which path do you follow?

Well that’s exactly what Kris Krohn experienced in his early 20’s, when he was trying to figure out the best way to create wealth with real estate.

Kris was dead-broke at the time, and he’d found plenty of answers when it came to building wealth, but he just didn’t know which one was correct.

So he did something that few people do…

He put all of his options on paper, and he ran the numbers…

What he discovered was a strategy that clearly stood above all the rest, which he’ll share with you here today.

Twelve years later, Kris has has bought and sold over 3,500 real estate properties, and makes millions of dollars per year in passive income.

In fact, his most recent deal alone will produce over $80,000 per month in cash flow.

Now there’s a second part to this story that we’re going to dive into as well, which is how I found Kris…

And that was a few months ago, while surfing YouTube.

He’s been producing a phenomenal stream of video content that is growing his channel by 20,000 to 30,000 subscribers per month, and I wanted to figure out what in the world he was doing, and how.

It’s safe to say that this is one of the most valuable episodes we’ve had here on Self Made Man, so buckle up, and please help me welcome Kris Krohn.

Rank #7: Bitcoin: Everything You Need To Know… with Teeka Tiwari

Podcast cover
Read more

Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies are a topic that I’ve avoided for years now. Not a single post… Not a single word about the subject, (until today), which is interesting when you consider that I’ve been involved in the cryptocurrency space since 2012.

Yep… I was buying Bitcoin back when it was around $50, and lost hundreds of them when Mt.Gox was hacked in 2014.

Ethereum? Yep… I bought a bunch of that as well when it was under $10.

I’ve done really, really, really well with cryptos, so why the silence?

Well I know from previous experience that entrepreneurs… My audience… Are risk-takers, and that many of you will take my recommendations as gospel.

Which is great when things work out well, but quite horrific when they don’t.

Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin are the most speculative, risky, and volatile markets in the world right now, so I’ve simply stayed away from the topic.

So what’s changed?

Well about a year ago, I finally found someone in the industry that I trust.

Many of you know that I’ve been fans and friends with the team behind The Palm Beach Letter for years now.

The Founder, Tom Dyson and I have been personal friends for almost 8 years, and Tom’s co-founder Mark Ford is someone I consider a mentor. In fact, he was Episode 02 on the podcast...

Well last year Tom brought a gentleman named Teeka Tiwari onto the team.

Teeka is the epitome of a Self Made Man. Growing up in the foster care system in the United Kingdom, Teeka came to the United States at age 16 with just $150 in his pocket and the clothes on his back. By 18, he had become the youngest employee at Lehman Brothers. Two years later, he shattered convention by becoming the youngest vice president in the history of Shearson Lehman.

From there he went on to start and manage his own successful hedge fund until 2013, when he retired and joined the Palm Beach team to focus on the opportunity in cryptos full time.

Until early this year, I had no idea who Teeka was.

I simply purchased access to his newsletter like everyone else did, and I quickly became a huge fan.

I finally found someone with a real financial background who’s taking a conservative, safe, systematic approach, to investing in cryptocurrencies… A true professional in an ocean of hype and crap.

Over the past six months, Teeka’s research has become the gold-standard in the industry, and his results are pretty incredible with an average portfolio return of more than 30 to 1…

So I’m finally talking about Bitcoin and cryptos today, because I’ve finally found someone I trust and that I’m willing to recommend in the industry.

If this is a subject your interested in, today’s episode is incredibly valuable… Well talk about the future potential for Bitcoin, or if it’s too late to invest.

We’ll talk about ICO’s, what’s going on in China after their recent crack-down on cryptos, and if the US will do the same…

If you’d like to subscribe to Teeka’s newsletter, you can learn more at PalmBeachBitcoin.com

Rank #8: How To Make 7-Figures With Amazon… with Matt Clark

Podcast cover
Read more

Today’s interview is going to be pretty special for a lot of you out there, who want to build an online business, but who might feel like you’re just not cut-out for an information marketing type of model.

Obviously if you follow my work and this podcast, you know that I’ve done very well as an online publisher and educator.   I figured out about 10 years ago, that I’m really good at writing books and courses, and selling those online. And in fact, I’ve sold around $60 million worth of those products during that time.   Naturally, a lot of my students want to create the same kind of business.   Well what if you’re just not meant for that… What if writing or recording products is a true struggle for you?   What if writing sales letters or sales video scripts is something you’ve attempted to do for years, unsuccessfully… What if you don’t want to turn on the camera and start posting pictures and videos to instagram every week to become an influencer and leader in your niche?   The bottom line is that very few people are meant for this kind of business, and that’s okay.   If that’s you, then today’s episode is what you’ve been looking for.   The good news, is that there is a different kind of business you can build… One that you can run from anywhere in the world, where you don’t have to write sales letters, or fire up the camera.   All you need to do is find, and list great products for sale.   I’m talk about Amazon.   There are literally tens of thousands of average ordinary people who make a phenomenal living, buying products at wholesale, and listing them for sale on Amazon.   Many of them have now started to private label those products under their own brand, build up a customer base, and then sell that company for millions of dollars just one to two years later.   It’s one of the most simple, and relatable business opportunities in the world, and the guy who help start this revolution is on with us here today… His name is Matt Clark, and over the past 7 years, Matt’s company had produced more successful Amazon business owners, than anyone else in the world.   So if you’ve been trying to build an online business, but it just hasn’t clicked, starting an Amazon business just might be the answer you’ve been looking for, and Matt is here today, to walk you through the entire process.

Rank #9: This Is The Fastest Way To Make 6-Figures… with Russ Ruffino

Podcast cover
Read more

Today’s podcast is going to be incredibly valuable if you’re looking for the fastest and easiest way to build a 6-figure business that can replace your income, and then allow you to scale to 7-figures.

At the end of the day, making money is all about math.

If you want to make $20,000 per month selling a $40 Ebook, you’d have to acquire 500 new customers per month, and the only way you’re going to be able to do that, is by putting 80-90% of the that money back into advertising.

So yes, you might make $20,000 in revenue, but you’d be lucky if any of that was actually left over as profit.

Or you can take a second option which is a bit counter-intuitive...

Instead of selling a simple e-book, you could sell access to a group coaching program for around $3,000 to $5,000. This means you’d only need to find just one new customer per week.

Finding four high-end customers per month is actually much easier, and much more profitable than finding 500.

So if you have some specialized knowledge or a skill set that can really solve someone’s problem or that can help them achieve a desired result, this is a business model that I would highly recommend taking a very close look at, and to help you learn more about it today, we’re joined by Russ Ruffino.

Russ is the founder of Clients On Demand, and over the past few years he’s helped thousands of experts create an incredibly simple consulting business that has allowed them to quickly replace or exceed their traditional income.

I learned about Russ a few months ago because my friend Krisstina is one of his clients, and had great feedback about his company, and their services.

What I found is a team that truly cares about the success of their customers, and who is willing to guide them through the process of setting up a consulting business, every single step of the way.

This could be a life-changing opportunity for many of you, so get ready to take some notes, and please help me welcome, Russ Ruffino.

Rank #10: How To Own The Day, And Own Your Life… with Aubrey Marcus

Podcast cover
Read more
I don’t consider many people in this world a mentor, but Aubrey is one that I do.   As you’ll hear today, he’s mastered the art of building a life, a business, and a world around him that matches the vision in his mind, better than anyone else I’ve ever met.   He’s spent years overcoming his biggest demons and challenges in business, in his relationships, and in his physical and mental health, and has literally transformed every aspect of his life to become the man he’s always wanted to be.   But the methodology he used to accomplish all of this, is what I love the most, and what we’re going to talk about today…   The good news is that radically transforming your life does not have to be this monumental event that requires you to muster up heroic levels of discipline. I think by now we all know that the chances of that working and sticking over the long-run are incredibly low.   What you can do, is break down that process into tiny little pieces that are much easier to implement.   This is what we’re going to talk about today, and it’s a game-changer…

Rank #12: How To Dramatically Improve Your Ability To Sell… with Matthew Pollard

Podcast cover
Read more

If you aren’t making the kind of money you want to make as an entrepreneur, the reason is simple… 

You’re missing a skillset, and that skillset is the ability to sell.

This was my achilles-heel when I was getting my start in my early 20’s.

For nearly six years I failed to make a dime of profit in my business ventures, because I was shy, I lacked confidence, and I had no idea how to sell.

Eventually I gave into the fact that if I truly wanted to succeed, I’d have to overcome my fears and master this ability.

Well today we’re joined by Matthew Pollard who had a similar experience and story.

After being forced into a sales gig that he had to succeed in, or he’d fail to pay his rent, Matthew cracked the sales code, but in a very different way.

Since then he’s been teaching companies in all kinds of industries from insurance agencies, to law firms, luxury automakers, and even professional soccer teams, how to position their brands, their offers, and their products to maximize sales.

If you struggle when it comes to selling your products or services, this episode will be a game-changer for you.

It’s honestly one of, if not the most detailed interviews we’ve ever had when it comes to specific sales tactics, strategies, and resources that you can start applying to your business today.

And if you want to drastically improve your social media game, make sure you listen to the last half of the show some game-changing resources.

Rank #13: How To Make Better Decisions… with Keith Cunningham

Podcast cover

We all strive to do our absolute best in our businesses and in our lives… We try to hire the best people, create the best products, and make the right decisions.   We put so much effort into making progress, but is that really where we should be spending out time?   Well today our guest poses an extremely interesting question…   Where would you be today, if you could simply go back, and unwind the biggest three mistakes you’ve made in life?   Maybe it was an investment decision…   Maybe it was a poor relationship choice…   Or maybe you trusted the wrong person in your business.   Now I don’t know about you, but if I could simply go back and unwind those events, I’d be 100X better off than I am today, despite all of my efforts to grow.   The advantages we can gain in life by simply making better decisions, far outweigh all of the hustle and grind we could ever muster.   This is a revelation Keith Cunningham had nearly 30 years ago. After amassing a real estate fortune worth over $100,000,000, Keith suddenly found himself filing for bankruptcy at the age of 40.   At a time in your life when you’re supposed to have everything figured out, Keith suddenly found himself with less than nothing… He actually owed millions in taxes to the IRS thanks to something incredibly insidious you’ll learn about today, called Phantom Income.   This crisis forced Keith to reevaluate his life and how he made his decisions, and the process he created as a result would change everything…   He quickly rebuilt his fortune, and has since dedicated his life to mentoring entrepreneurs like us, so that we can learn from his experiences. He is one of the best in the world at what he does, which is why you’ll find him on the stage at every Tony Robbins event, leading the lessons on business and entrepreneurship.   Today’s episode is one that can radically change your life for the better, so get ready to take some notes.

Rank #14: How to UnF*ck Yourself…With Gary John Bishop

Podcast cover
Read more

Welcome To The Mike Dillard podcast, where entrepreneurs like you get the knowledge and skills you need to bring your dreams to life.

Well gang, welcome to the new format and the inaugural episode of the Mike Dillard Podcast.

Wait a minute… What? Where did Self Made Man go?

If you’re wondering what in the world is going on, and why I’ve changed the name of the show, head over to my YouTube Channel and please watch the video that I just posted this week which will give you all of the details. Make sure you hit the subscribe button as well because I’m going to start posting videos there on a regular basis.

With that being said, I can tell you this…

Part of the reason for the name change is a result of the personal work I’ve done over the past year, that you’re about to discover here today.

We’re joined by Gary John Bishop, and this interview is one of the single most profound discussions that we've ever had on this podcast over the past four years.

So who is Gary? Well, for the most part, he was just a regular guy meandering through life, when he found himself attending a personal development conference many years ago on a whim.

He wasn’t necessarily searching for answers at the time, but he decided to go on the recommendation of a friend, and what he learned during the next few days would completely transform his life.

Now you’re clearly into personal development, which is why you’re listening to this podcast right now.

But here’s a question for you…

Why aren’t the lives of everyone who dives into the personal development process, radically changed?

How many people do you know, and maybe you’re one of them, have read all the books, listened to all of the podcasts, and attended all of the events… And yet they still struggle?

Well, that’s what you’re going to discover here today.

Well Richard Cooper went through his crucible just a few years ago at the age of 40.   During a five year span, he went through a divorce two years after his daughter was born and lost everything to his ex.   During the same period, the company he started ten years previously was being threatened with a government policy change that would put him out of business.   His family was gone, his money was gone, and his business was about to be destroyed. He was constantly experiencing symptoms of post traumatic stress disorder, and thoughts of suicide started to look more and more appealing.   And then one day Richard was handed the copy of a book called, “The Rational Male”... A moment that would change the course of his life.   It allowed him to define a new vision for his life… One that would turn him into an advocate for men everywhere who are going through their crucible.   If you are going through a challenging period, or if you are simply not the kind of man you would like to be, today’s interview will change your life.

Rank #17: How To Become The Man You Want To Be… with Ryan Michler

Podcast cover
Read more
I’ve often said on this podcast, that there are only two ways to transform a society, for better or worse… And that is through the barrel of a gun, or through the minds of the next generation.   Today we’re joined by Ryan Michler who has seen the impact that America’s decaying values have had, specifically on our young men over the past decade.   Today, men and masculinity are under attack. Men of all ages are being taught by the media that they are bad, that they are broken, and that they are wrong.   The institutions that have served as sacred havens for brotherhood and camaraderie like the Boy Scouts and the field of battle have been recently taken away from them, and simply being a masculine man today, invites judgement and shame today from an ever-increasing number of mentally ill people who are angry at the world, and how have been told that it’s all men’s fault.   When you combine that kind of social pressure and influence with the fact that most young men over the past decade have grown up without a father, or a positive male role model in their lives who can teach them how to be an honest, strong, protector and provider, you end up with a generation of men who do not know what it looks like to be a man anymore.   This attack on men will eventually collapse a society, and it’s one of the reasons why I started this podcast four years ago.   And I’m not alone of my observations or my actions…   Ryan has become one of the biggest leaders in this movement, as the Founder of OrderOfMan.com   As you’ll hear today, Ryan’s story is one that began with himself and the problems he was experiencing in his own life as he struggled to figure out what it means to become a husband and a father, while never having one to learn from when he was a child.   Over the past few years Ryan’s personal transformation has been absolutely incredible as he literally went from the overweight, tie-wearing corporate guy straight out of the movie Office Space, to a true leader of men in every way.   Today, his message is simple… It’s that every man is born with just one thing: his sovereignty - his power to respond to his environment and his circumstances. Unfortunately, most men have been taught by society give away that sovereignty. Every time a man passes blame or shirks his responsibility, every time he makes excuses for his performance, and every time he trades his unlimited potential for a little perceived safety and security, he willingly submits himself to the mercy of others.   You don’t have to look very far to recognize that men don’t seem to possess the same amount of vigor and purpose they once did.   Take one sobering statistic—the rate of suicide in men—and you begin to see how damaging the effects of the voluntary subjugation of men to their families, their businesses, and their governments can be.   It’s not hard to understand why we give up control to others—it’s easy and we’re expected to. Sovereignty: The Battle for the Hearts and Minds of Men is a call for men to once again rise up and establish themselves as they once were—a revolution if you will.   And as for the amazing women out there who support and listen to this show, I want to say thank you. While helping men become the best they can be may be the purpose Order of Man, and what we do here at Self Made Man, you are the ultimate beneficiary of our work as we strive to build better husbands, fathers, partners, and sons, so thank you.   This podcast is brought to you by SelfMadeMan.com, where you can get the knowledge and skills you need to dramatically improve your business, learn how to build your wealth, and transform your relationships from the best teachers in the world.   After you listen to today’s episode, make sure you head to SelfMadeMan.com and checkout the brand new video class from Ryan Michler, on how to turn your mission, into a movement.

Rank #19: Finding Your Perfect Partner In Life… with Chris and Heidi Powell

Podcast cover
Read more
Today’s interview is one of my favorites…   We’re going to sit down with the biggest power couple in fitness, Chris and Heidi Powell.   If they sound familiar, it’s because they are the stars of ABC’s hit show, Extreme Weight Loss, and together, they have built up a social media following of more than 3 million fans.   Well my plan for this interview was to dive into how they’ve built their brand and their business empire.   And while that’s what we end up discussing, how they achieved their success was completely unexpected…   At the end of the day, what they’ve built is not a result of effective marketing… It’s the result of the relationship they have with each other.   When Chris met Heidi, he was completely broke and literally living out of his car.   Heidi was divorced with two kids, and the last thing she wanted was a relationship.   But the attitude that each of them brought to the table when it came to their dreams in life, and each other, was the magic pixie dust that changed everything.   There is nothing in this world, that has a greater impact on your destiny, or quality of life, than the partner you choose to spend it with. What you have here today, is an opportunity to see what’s possible when you choose the right person. You’ll have a chance to see the qualities you want to look for as you hear Chris and Heidi share their story, and you’ll walk away from this interview with a lasting example in your mind, of what a world-class relationship looks like, and what’s possible in life when you find the perfect partner.

Podcast cover
Read more

Today we have an amazing interview with the Founder of Black Rifle Coffee, Evan Hafer...

Black Rifle is the quintessential entrepreneur success story...

So Evan had two passions in life… Roasting his own coffee, and serving his country as a member of the Special Forces.

When he finally made the decision to retire from the military, he needed a plan B, and selling coffee became it.

He would literally roast his beans at home, bag them, and then taught himself how to market online until he made his very first sale.

From that point forward, he never looked back, and has created one of the most viral brands in the world.

Black Rifle Coffee is one of the best examples of niche marketing that you’ll ever find.

They market a fantastic product to a very specific audience, without apology…

Their humorous ads are filled with guns, girls, and a declaration of war on hipsters and their dedication to their audience has been rewarded in spades.

Today they’ve grown to 100 employees, have 30,000 active customers who subscribe to their monthly coffee club, and a valuation that’s in the $100’s of millions.

If you want to learn how to create a world-class brand from your kitchen table… If you want to dive into the formula they’ve used to create their viral marketing videos, and if you want to learn what it takes to build a $100 Million company from scratch, do not miss this episode.
