Great personal experiences and advice
As I work through the beginning stages of putting a social enterprise together, I've been looking for resources and listening to as many related podcasts as possible. The Shin Fijuyami Podcast is certainly one of the most underrated channels out there. I hope to one day have the privilege to meet Shin, to thank him for sharing all his wisdom and bringing passionate and experienced individuals to share their knowledge and continue inspiring all of us who are new and entering into this world of positive impact and change.
