Our Editor's Take

Who doesn't want a million dollars? Everyone gets asked what they'd do with a million dollars, but few get asked how they'd earn it. In the My First Million podcast, Sam Parr and Shaan Puri present the latest big ideas in the business world. They discuss more than side hustles and avoiding scams. Leaders of industries share their knowledge on the podcast. Listeners will hear current economic and business news and what's coming next.

Entrepreneurship can take many forms. It might be starting a blog or a real estate company or recognizing what buyers will want next. Or it might be starting in Silicon Valley as an employee and then making $100,000,000 a year selling companies. Host Sam Parr shares his experience creating The Hustle. This email newsletter started with a few subscribers but grew to more than one million. How did he do it? He gives all the details on the My First Million podcast.

Suleman Ali tells his own story in one My First Million podcast episode. He talks about risking all his savings and investing in businesses he believed in. Listeners can hear from self-made millionaires like Ali on many episodes.

While interviewing the biggest names in business, Sam and Shaan reveal how to be an entrepreneur and salesperson. Everyone is always selling something, and knowing how and when to sell is vital. In one episode of the My First Million podcast, Shaan unveils the secrets of a successful sales pitch.

Someone might think there's no reason to stop at a million dollars. Why not a billion? Billionaire Dharmesh Shah joins in one episode to tell his story. Shah, the cofounder of Hubspot, discusses what has more money-making potential than the creation of the internet. He's talking about artificial intelligence. Should investors start buying stocks from AI companies? Shah thinks so.

My First Million provides insight into the US business world? Listeners can learn here how others made their money.
