Welcome to My First Million

The Hustle’s latest podcast for business builders, schemers, and dreamers.

Unlike other “business” podcasts, hosts Shaan Puri and Sam Parr aren’t here to criticize entrepreneurs or tell you why making money or business building is evil.

My First Million aims to do the exact opposite.

Celebrate builders, even if they fail. And give you the tools to help you turn your scheme into a reality.

Both Shaan and Sam have built and are operating successful businesses. They’re not journalists. So what you’ll get is a smart show with people who actually know what they’re talking about.

Listen on

In each episode you might get the following

A successful founder being interviewed and grilled on how they did what they did.

Sam and Shaan doing case studies on businesses you likely haven’t heard of.

Shaan and Sam looking at the news and showing where the business opportunities are.
