And, I’ve realized the more people I follow in that lane of entrepreneurship, you start to see people doing things.” (13:21) (Ponyboy Pol) “I just became a fan of [podcasts] because of the information and the ability to get intimate with someone you never met but you know all about them because you’re listening to them every week.” (19:50) (Ponyboy Pol) “It’s been actually good to humble myself and really learn from the people who are doing it. Sometimes when you get egotistical or cocky, that actually prevents you from learning and being that student.” (31:39) (Ponyboy Pol) “Ideally what I want to do is have a platform where everything I’m doing is benefiting either my generation or the next generation.” (34:48) (Ponyboy Pol) “If we could all just empathize a little bit more, man, the world would be amazing.” (52:16) (Ponyboy Pol) RESOURCES MENTIONED https://fullcast.co/ (FullCast Website) https://www.facebook.com/groups/podcastjunkiesjunkies/ (Podcast Junkies Junkies Facebook Group) https://podfestexpo.com/ (Link to Podfest Expo Virtual Summit) https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/pol-and-pals/id1529798095 (Ponyboy Pol’s Podcast ) https://read.polandpals.live/ (Ponyboy Pol’s Newsletter) https://twitter.com/ponyboypol (Ponyboy Pol’s Twitter) https://www.instagram.com/ponyboypol/ (Ponyboy’s Instagram) https://www.facebook.com/polandpals (Pol and Pals Facebook) https://twitter.com/polandpals (Pol and Pals Twitter) https://www.instagram.com/polandpals/ (Pol and Pals Instagram) https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKfxTXF27HvCqWKNtgXcRXg (Pol and Pals YouTube Channel) https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCCvcd0FYi58LwyTQP9LITpA/videos (Link to Soft, White Underbelly YouTube Channel) Book Mentioned: https://www.amazon.com/Set-for-Life-Scott-Trench-audiobook/dp/B071NLYJDF/ref=sr_1_1?crid=3JAFX2POXMNAW&dchild=1&keywords=set+for+life+by+scott+trench&qid=1633144343&sprefix=set+for+life%2Caps%2C161&sr=8-1 (Set For Life) Podcasts Mentioned: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/andrew-schulzs-flagrant-2-with-akaash-singh/id1288641267 (Flagrant 2) https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/andrew-schulzs-flagrant-2-with-akaash-singh/id1288641267 (Brilliant Idiots) https://www.biggerpockets.com/podcast (Bigger Pockets) https://www.smartpassiveincome.com/shows/spi/ (Smart Passive Income) https://serialpodcast.org/season-one (Serial)...
