I need that for my allergies I would love to try it… I think I would love to tackle the marketing but can I have the name for the allergy liquid… love you guys

Mind Blown!

I’ve listened to the episode with Rob Dyrdek twice. So much to unpack. Bring him back!

Fantastic Podcast

One of my favorite podcasts. Listen via every source I can depending on what I’m doing. Great information, ideas and always a great time.

Amazing Content!

Shaan and Sam do such a good job covering a variety of topics. The guests offer valuable insight as well. I would recommend this podcast to anyone looking to be inspired and informed!

Phenomenal content

2 smart tech bros making quality content. Keep it moving if you dislike confidence, willingness to explore new ideas and possibly look stupid or excitable people.

Fantastic, Better Than Expected

Sometimes this show comes perilously close to being a “dude. Bro. Yeah MMA. dude” tech-bro chit chat podcast but there is enough substantive gold there to overall be absolutely worth it, quality content that inspires me each time.

One of my favorite podcasts

Really interesting and entertaining podcast

From “I need a $” days to today

MFM is the only Podcast I listen to. Every minute is worth it. Shaan and Sam are the best, down to earth people that love to share every nugget they have. I became obsessed when the 2nd episode dropped… I do miss Shaan’s interviews, when he used to ask questions so a 5yo would get get it… love the show and I would listen to it all day everyday.

It’s great

Hi Sam and Shaan! Longtime listener who happens to be…. A moral and political philosopher. (Don’t ask, it’s a long story.) On a recent episode, you were talking about how you wanted to give away more of your money. Have you heard about effective altruism? I think you’d be interested. Also, I’d recommend the philosopher William MacAskill as a guest you should have on the show. Other things to research: GiveDirectly, GiveWell, and the book The Life You Can Save by Peter Singer. Sorry to write you about this here - I’m not really on social media and thought this was the best way to get in touch. But a five star review is not nothing, right? Take care, guys.

Favorite podcast - great for people who love ideas/business/entrepreneurship

Glad I found this podcast. Can’t remember how I did but it’s my favorite podcast. Every episode is full of ideas, entertainment and quality opinions. Love the hosts

Bro or no-bro

My husband has listened to this podcast for some time now. I would listen in occasionally when he wanted me to hear an episode. At first, I thought it was a little too bro for me but I did find the info rather interesting, so I decided to listen on my own. I started at the beginning, so I could get a feel for how it began and I have been hooked ever since. I love the idea sessions and the chemistry between Sam and Shaan. So, is the show too bro? Not at all. I am a fifty year old mother of 3, RN, tech geek and business woman. I don’t fit the mold of the typical fan, but I do look forward to the episodes. I have even listened to a few twice. My husband has been a web developer and business owner since 1997. We recently started a company together. This show gives us inspiration and keeps us informed on the latest concepts. Keep up the great work!

Amazing and valuable content.

Shaan & Sam, hosts of the My First Million podcast, highlight all aspects of investing, money and more in this can’t miss podcast! The hosts and expert guests offer insightful advice and information that is helpful to anyone that listens!

My Favorite Podcast

I’ve been listening to this podcast for about 2 years. It has truly changed my perspective on life and has made making a million dollars seem tangible for a Midwestern, first gen college graduate, blue collar background gal like myself. Thank you guys for all you give!! Appreciate you so much.

Must listen for entrepreneurs.

Anyone with an entrepreneurial mindset needs to have this show on their rotation. Outside of just the entertaining conversations and interesting ideas, it shows you the mindset you need to have to make it as an entrepreneur—and directly from someone who has seen extreme success. Great show. Great hosts.

Shaan is Sam’s Uncle??

No, but he IS a year older than him. 😉 Seriously, this podcast is my favorite. I like it so much, that I’m actually writing a review. I don’t normally do this. 3 months ago: I was miserable in a 9-5 corporate job. {2 months of MFM binging} Now: Ongoing side hustle, Broke ground on a scalable main hustle, Sent in my 2 weeks notice. I won’t say MFM completely changed my life… but it certainly was a catalyst/launching pad. It inspired me to take my AirPods out and take action. Sam and Shaan, you’ll be hearing from me soon! Thanks for keeping it real. Suggestion: An episode with tactical steps to go from 0 to 1 on any of your ideas could be valuable. Ideas are great, but I think many young listeners don’t know where to start. A “field guide” or “playbook” on turning idea into startup, with or without a guest, would be cool. ✌🏼✌🏼

Great podcast

Love these guys! They inspired me to start my own business when they said “you don’t need to have a revolutionary idea to have a business. You just need to start.” On a similar note, they said “in life it’s a lot more about motion than direction.” Lots of great bits of information in this podcast and a great one for anyone who wants to start their own business.


Wow! So happy I came across this podcast. It’s amazing content and as a business owner myself with ungodly crazy high goals this podcast just gets me extra motivated. Love it guys. I’ve binged an unhealthy amount of episodes in the past week since I found you!

Binge-worthy business content

Confession: I have binge-listened to 100 episodes of this podcast. Can’t get enough. I think Sam and Shaan’s chemistry and style is fun — and thought-provoking. Highly recommend it for all entrepreneurs, or aspiring entrepreneurs.

Favorite New Business Podcast

My First Million from The Hustle is my favorite new business podcast. Subscribe if you’re into startups and internet entrepreneurship. Excellent guests, always entertaining, and lots of great advice for making your first $1,000,000.

Awesome podcast

Definitely one of the most informative and inspirational podcasts available.


Great content!

Most actionable startup content on earth

Nothing gets the juices flowing in my brain box like this podcast. Don’t let the wack infomercial name fool you! Been listening since it was just Shaan doing interviews, and it’s evolved into something really special. The hosts have a great dynamic, they both walk-the-walk and have crushed it in the startup game, and are just here to elevate others. They play off each other well and have quality banter. You know that list of ideas you have? It’s going to 10x once you start listening to this podcast. So much gold. You might quit your job if you listen too much — you’ve been warned! _better and more actionable than any other business podcast_, without a doubt.


Tons of great nuggets in this pod, impressive!

So much value!

I have been listening since day one and always can’t wait for the next episode. If someone told me that two dudes were going to just riff on what they thought was cool and interesting I would’ve said no thanks on face value but Shaan and Sam have a great back and forth and very different styles and attitudes which work well together and make for a cool listen. The main, most important point, is that the value they bring per episode is really amazing and they do it in a very easy to understand and digest way. It is an idea factory, an inside look into Silicon Valley, amazing business ideas, and a fun listen all rolled into one. Highly recommend!

Idea Generator

Listening to this podcast is like taking steroids for generating business ideas.

My new favorite podcast

As a young hopeful entrepreneur this is everything I could have asked for

The best!!!

This is my go to podcast for anything with small business. I love listening almost if not everyday, listening to the new and old episodes. They are packed with information and ideas. I love the podcast, keep up the great work!!! I have a friend that turned me on to the podcast and I have been impressed by every episode.

Love it.

Went away for a while but guys are back and better than ever.

My Second Favorite Podcast!

Great Podcast, great ideas, good info shared and cool guys!

It’s a great staple pod- pretty simple

I don’t think I’ve ever left a podcast review but felt compelled because of how good the show is and how much I look forward to episodes each week. Great blend of info, entertainment, and ideation. Strong range on interests from blue collar biz to the most deep tech.

Yes! More Mike Maples please

I have listened to every MFM podcast you all have published. It’s gets me fired up each day as run my business… but I listened the Mike Maples interview back to back. I had to re-listen and take notes. Great Episode !! Thanks guys keep up the great work !

Engagement by asking guests questions

My two cents: love this podcast overall. My favorite part is how both Sam and Shaan engage with their audience through Twitter. I’m a 22 year old trying to get into this startup space and explore opportunities and see what successful people would do if they were my age. I do wish I could ask their guests questions or if there was a way they could tell us the guest and we could submit our own questions to add on

Amazing and valuable content.

This show offers amazing and insightful advice. Each episode provides inspiring ideas, motivation in their life and interesting stories. With a variety of topics and great hosts this show is a must listen!

I’ve recommended this podcast to multiple friends!

This is why: #1 The Billy & Hilly of the week. The simplicity of the vending machine business is shocking. #2 When you two play the game “guess what this company is valued at.” What a phenomenal way to get better at valuating companies! #3 The little gems Shaan drops about mindset and noticing your thoughts are fascinating. I also loved Shaan’s solo episode where he talked about loosing $500K in Bitcoin. Keep it up! Mia

Brain Juice and Idea Therapy for Future Founders

If you listen to this podcast, you’ll get tons of business ideas. Great. BUT... If you do it right - If you truly follow what Sam+Shaan talk about and who they surround themselves with on a daily basis, you’ll find yourself right there next to them immersed in the same circle of people & opportunities.

Great podcast. Give the people what we want- More Trung

It’s good stuff. Shaan and Sam do an awesome job. Recommend it to get the wheels going in ur head.

Amazing Show and Amazing Content

I just started listening to the show 5 days ago and I’ve been binge listening while at my day job. A minimum of 10 episodes per day. I can’t get enough of your content. Every time a I start listening you set my mind on fire with new ideas to consider when looking into businesses and opportunities. Thanks for all of the great info. I look forward to listening to more.

Love this show!

I absolutely love this podcast! I listen all the time. It’s so interesting listening to these guys bounce business ideas off of each other.

Fantastic pod

Sam and Shaan are a great listen. Love their insight

My favorite new podcast

I listen to a ton of podcasts. I haven’t been this stoked about a podcast since I found Tim Ferriss. The content these guys are putting out is straight fire.

Awesome show but...

Please stop talking about the podcast, number of listens, etc. I’m beginning to get super irritated hearing about it and it’s making me want to stop listening

Great show!

Shaan and Sam, hosts of the My First Million podcast, highlight all aspects of business and more in this can’t miss podcast! The hosts and expert guests offer insightful advice and information that is helpful to anyone that listens!

Best pod on the internet

Sam and Shaan cover so many topics it’s insane! I feel genuinely more capable of seeing/creating opportunity after listening.

The best

I can’t even begin to list all of the good ideas and interesting rabbit hole this pod has introduced me to. These guys are great!

Stick to the Core

Great podcast, just do not want to see Sam and Shaan lose what made them great by having to answer to HubSpot; I do not even like the new photo and having the HubSpot Network logo.

Pure Energy For Business Ideas

Shawn & Sam do an amazing job with this podcast by providing great business ideas, life/business advice and just pure energy that will get you fired up in every episode. Each episode they discuss 3-4 business ideas, breakdown the numbers and give you a road map to your next million dollar business. If you love staying on top of business trends and thinking of new ideas this is the podcast for you!


Tech bros talking shop.

I found my people !!!

For years I have had tuns of ideas floating around my head but never had anyone to bounce them off. I thought I was alone until I found this podcast. I have listened to every one and can’t wait for the next one. I have gained great insight into my own business and feel like I can dive into new business ideas with super friendly like-able and funny dudes in Shaan and Sam.

Energy and Ideas- love it!

Been listening nonstop since I found this. Guys are ballers with tons of ideas, energy and confidence that somehow rub off on me. They get into the nuts and bolts of making money, startups, investing.

An Entrepreneurs Wet Dream

MFM establishes the fundamentals for all things business, investing, etc. From starting a hot dog stand to chatting with billionaires, you’ll find it here. Absorb the content, reflect on it, and implement into your daily life. Thank me later. Ps: Sam, Shaan, I haven’t done much with my life thus far but would like to bet you guys $100 I’ll be on your pod in the next decade.

Gets the juices flowing...

If you constantly have business or creative ideas that pop into your head that you don’t know what to do with, listen to these guys. Shaan and Sam have great things to say about new ideas and what to do with them.

Best Podcast Available

Shaan and Sam are a great duo. They share great ideas and actionable tips. It’s the only podcast I listen to every week. Keep doing what you do!

1 of 2 podcasts that I actually listen to all of it

my favorite podcast series, I listen to at least 1-2 a week and they constantly keep my creativity flowing. great work.

So inspiring

I truly needed direction in finding a career that suited me. Listening to this helped me find a path that was well suited and made me happy.

Great info and insights

Each episode offers great info on different topics, from small investments to managing large corporate deals. Lots of good knowledge, keep it up guys

So far so great

Stumbled across this podcast last week and it’s quickly become one of if not my favorites after listening to around 10 episodes. Going to listen to all 178+! Great topics and great conversation.

Love it!

Best podcast ever!

Perfect mix of entertainment and business advice

Was skeptical going in based on the title of this podcast, but ended up loving it! The hosts have a perfect contrast in both personality and business sense that makes for super interesting conversations that both entertain and educate. Highly recommend.

Subscribe, DO IT.

MFM is the only pod I listen to regularly. Both Sam and Shaan are insightful yet relatable. It is an inspiring mix of their experiences and ventures along with top tier guests. I feel like I’ve learned more from listening to this pod over the last few years than I did in business school. Keep it up boys!


I LOVE the variety of businesses these guys talk about. It’s one of my favorite new podcasts!!!!

My favorite podcast ever

I’m not a big podcaster but I have about 3 that I listen to, this being one of them. So insightful and I learn a ton every episode. I love the how casual it is but also nothing inspires me more!

More inspiring than any other tech entrepreneur podcast I listen to!

After 177 episodes, Shaan and Sam have inspired me to start my own website! Well almost. I love these guys. I listen to them every chance I get and they’re great. I get a lot of ideas from them, and almost committed on a couple of occasions, but then get lazy. Not their fault!!! They keep the hits coming! They’re very witty, have great content, and great guests. Maybe one day I’ll be on the pod talking about my first million.

Smart and fun dudes

You know the saying “you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with”, well adding Sam and Shaan to my podcast entourage makes me a better and smarter person. They brings interesting topics, talk about what s up in the cyber space (yes that s how I call the internet at my age) and listening to them debating how to build businesses in different spaces is enlightening. They also go off script and talk about random but still interesting stuff. This podcast is such a treat!

Favorite Pod

I've been listening to the pod since early 2020... It's been awesome to see Shaan and Sam grow as much as they have over the last year. Kudos to them for putting so much effort into delivering massive value to us... Thanks so much guys - keep up the great work :)

Great Podcast!!

Always informative and funny.

Love this


My favorite business podcast

If you’re looking for something fun, interesting, and inspiring to listen to, My First Million is the podcast for you. Shaan and Sam both have great personalities and different strengths, so they’re able to volley ideas back and forth in playful, interesting way. Also, they demystify the process of starting a business or side hustle and give frameworks & playbooks on how to do it. Finally, the guests that they feature continue to get more interesting and exciting, which leads to even more valuable content. This is definitely one of my favorite podcasts period.

Been here since day 1, best podcast ever!

As I scroll back through the “all episodes” tab to episode 1, and I scroll up and see “played” on every episode I can’t help but be hit with a wave of nostalgia. I feel like a proud parent watching a child succeed as these guys climb all the way towards the top spot on the Apple podcast chart. This show just gets better and better, Shaan and Sam could narrate a baby shower or a colonoscopy and I’d still tune in to listen. They make every single topic interesting, and they boyish sense of wonder and enthusiasm for business and life in general is not only motivating but also infectious. I feel a little torn since I loved and miss the original episodes, hearing a founders story of getting to a million dollars, but the newer format is just incredible. The stories you have shared, the insights you have given, the guests you’ve introduced me to, and just your attitudes toward life have had a lasting impact on mine. Thank you guys so much for putting your heart and souls into this podcast. Needless to say, I would recommend.


I’m literally addicted to this pod. It’s so good. So much useful insight into various business, ideas, possible problems and thinking patterns if successful entrepreneurs. I listen to it almost daily. Furthermore, Sam and Shawn are just good and humorous people who don’t take themselves too serious. Down to earth with amazing insight and knowledge. 🙌

Best Pod

MFM has been the best pod for a while now.

Add this podcast to your “Inner Circle”

There’s that tired quote of you’re the average of the 5 or so people you spend your time with, same goes with Podcasts. Adding Sam and Shaan to your inner circle is like adding pre-workout to your gym routine, they get you absolutely PUMPED. Listen to this if you’re looking for regular entrepreneurial brain exercises, motivation, and the never ending reminder of the sheer amount of opportunity in this world. My favorite business podcast.

Great show

Tons of valuable content every show.

Awesome show!

This podcast is hands down! One of best shows! I love hearing new ideas and sometimes even hear the same episodes twice in a row. It’s a must listen!

Inspirational content

I look forward to Sean and Sam’s content each week. It keeps my creative juices flowing and motivates our team.

Tactical advice for all types of businesses

Sam and Shaan do a great job of laying out interesting new business ideas but also speak to the steps they would take to start each one. Another bonus, they always share best practices, tips and resources they’ve learned along the way. This is a must listen pod for an entrepreneur or anyone looking to dive into entrepreneurship!


Started listening today and went through 4 episodes. Got the wheels turning in my brain!

Shaan & Sam are honorary members of New Story

Move over Walter White, there are new cooks in town! I’m hooked on MFM. 30% of our water-cooler nonsense at work can be traced back to this podcast. Shaan and Sam are either the largest contributors to our creative brainstorming OR the biggest detours from our productivity. Probably both. Shaan has 113% of his net worth in Bitcoin?! Well, thanks to BitClout, I’m all-in on Puri and Parr! Top of the charts, here we come!

Love the pod!

Love Shaan and Sam. They do a great job diving into different topics and subcategories of business/ideas. Only pod I listen to as soon as it drops.


The guests and content are inspirational even if not in the tech industry/world.

Your Local Tractor-Trailer Driver

Love this show. These two have the best energy, mindset, and always have great ideas. You’re great teachers as well- Always excited to hear new episodes.

Energetic and inspiring.

The topics to me are very different and new in contrast to my brick and mortar business reality, so I find the podcast very refreshing. And even though I don’t really follow much of the advice offered, it does affect my mindset when tackling problems at work. So, for example, our grocery wholesale business has become a bit more retail oriented during the pandemic. As a result, customers have been asking us to have some sort of webstore/e-commerce option to “order and pick-up” or “order and deliver” for an extra charge. The mental framework to make that happen is very different than how a typical IT project gets done in our business. The energy and inspiration I derive from the podcast helps me maintain my optimism high and reduce my anxiety about the project because I KNOW it can (and should) be done. Keep up the great work and good luck in hitting the Top 10. The last episode with Andrew Wilkinson was awesome. PS - I find that MORE isn’t necessarily BETTER. I’m having trouble keeping up with the increase in episodes. That means that I will be more picky with what I listen. If it’s not good I’m skipping it.

Best Podcast For Business Owners

Best podcast out there for business owners and entrepreneurs. The Billy of the week is my favorite thing!

Awesome business podcast

The podcast is great for getting the business creative juices flowing. I have learned about many new businesses and ideas by listening. The show is also very entertaining. Definitely top of my regular listen list.

I'm a smarter businessperson and more informed investor thanks to this pod

If you have the choice to get and MBA or listen to this pod, I'm not saying the MBA is a waste of money but you seriously might learn more from MFM. It's full of incredible insight and hanging out with two successful founders/investors all the time!

Love this podcast

I listen to this podcast every week. Always informative and inspiring.

This pod makes me more creative in all aspects of my life

I listen to every single one of these episodes from start to finish and it’s opened my eyes to investigating the businesses and opportunities all around me. Super entertaining and has completely rewired my brain!

MFM = Top 5 Podcast Ever Made?

﷽ My friend Masroor Ahmed turned me on to the MFM pod last year. At first, i just listened occasionally—and i was certain that Sam was the Indian guy (bc his voice totally sounds like a nasally Desi), and I thought Shaan was the white dude. i started missing episodes, bc i mostly used to listen to podcasts while driving, and the Pandemic killed my driving time. However, in the past few months, i came to realize that MFM may be one of the best podcasts in existence. Always chock full of practical advice and business education, the episodes are CONSISTENTLY entertaining and informative. For entrepreneurs and even investors, the forward-looking peeks into emerging trends, the latest tech innovations, and insider-only intel (that SV VCs and stealth startups normally hoard and keep to themselves) are ALWAYS shared. My prediction is that Shaan Puri will become the Brown Tony Robbins, Sam Parr will become a billionaire, and the MFM podcast will become the #1 Business podcast in the world by 2025. i have put my (crypto) money where my mouth is, and just bought both of their creator coins on Bitclout, and in fact, as of today, i am the largest hodler of the Sam Parr creator coin on the platform! If you want to listen to interesting business ideas, learn a ton about investing and entrepreneurship, and have a fun time doing so, you will love the MFM podcast.

Awesome Podcast

Great podcast that goes through business ideas and successful businesses. It breaks it down in an easy way and give you the stories to understand and remember the next time you’re in a conversation or evaluating your own business. Will be a long time listener.

Best Business Podcast. Period.

I’ve been listing for a couple of years now and can’t get enough of the MFM podcast. Real & raw - Shaan and Sam bring more value than any other business podcast I listen to. It’s the first thing I listen to the day each episode drops.


No other podcast generates as many business ideas. Each and every episode gets the entrepreneurial wheels turning in my brain. Take the Myers-Briggs Personality Type Index (MBTI) and if you’re an iNtuitive Thinker, you’re going to devour these episodes, too.

I hear their voices more than my Best Friends

I’ve been listening for over a year and wow what an interesting show to review! If their stated goal is to teach me how to run a business, I’m not sure its working. But if its to inspire and keep me motivated to take action, these guys crush it. Shaan on the one shoulder tempting me to YOLO on a moonshot crypto project and Sam on the other keeping me focused on getting people’s attention. Both have nailed their approaches as entrepreneurs and I’d be happy to follow either of their paths. Curious to see how they continue their latest efforts to grow the podcast. They both angel invest, love to motivate founders, and have a huge audience of startups. Seems like they’re overlooking a huge opportunity to be the next Shark Tank not bound by traditional television. Either way, keep it up fellas!

Best Business Podcast

Every episode I gain something unique on how to operate, or think about my business differently in order to scale and grow. This podcast reminded me of the possibilities my business has and has kept me motivated in dreaming/making it big in the industry while keeping a perspective of why I’m doing it.

Awesome Stuff

Entertaining, thought-provoking, raw

Perfect for adult ADHD’ers

Like the ESPN of random biz and tech stuff You won’t know who is talking for the first 6 months, so if you’re okay with that and wondering why you aren’t running the next “window sweeping tech enabled robot cat business”, you’re gonna love it



My all-time favorite

MFM is a can’t miss for me. Most startup and business podcasts are hosted by VCs and never-been-there or done that consultants. Not this one. Shaan and Sam are proven operators who are willing to share numbers, lessons, and failures from their actual experiences in the trenches. Also they’re a ton of fun to listen to. A+.

Top Notch Energy & Ahead of the Curve

If I’m going to listen to a podcast during a long training run on the trails, it has to have 2 things. 1. High energy. The host(s) need to be excited and able to jam with guests at a good pace—especially when they jam on business models. 2. Content that’s relevant for me, right now. Shaan and Sam are ahead of the curve. They’re founders who have been there and done that. They’re founders who invest in other founders. Clayton Mooney, Founder @ Nebullam

Mind opening

Scrolling through looking for podcasts I found this gem! I have been subscribed to The Hustle newsletter since near the beginning and it’s the best email I receive all week out of thousands! This podcast is a real gem. My mind is so opened and the creative juices just start flowing. Made me get to the point to throw money into my own incubator snd see if anything sticks. For the young entrepreneur, these guys drop GOLD NUGGET BOMBS. a++++

Love you f****rs

As a noob entrepreneur you guys are silly an awesome, I listen every week. Keep it up!
