These guys bring VALUE! For anyone thinking of becoming an entrepreneur or thinking of free lancing from corporate life, you need to hear this podcast! This podcast is different, this podcast motivates, this podcast makes you take that step towards your freedom. Matt & Ricardo bring on some quality guest and those guest share not only their success but HOW they got there. They know what questions to ask and the best part you get to live the life through each and every individual as they share their failures and successes. All other business podcasts I listen to is only a one man show telling you what to do, but what a better way to learn through the successes of others! Kill it gentlemen and keep doing what you’re doing.

Fabulous information is delivered throught this podcast, which is very well produced. I really like how the introduction is short and to the point and tells the listener what to expect from the show. Another plus for me is how Ricardo and Matthew aren't loud and boistrous and deliver the show with respect to their guests and don't rely on tacky music and themes to make an impact. Well worth a listen.
