For the analysis, reCAPTCHA evaluates various information (e.g. IP address, how long the visitor has been on the website, or mouse movements made by the user). The data collected during the analysis will be forwarded to Google. The reCAPTCHA analyses take place completely in the background.

Hey Byron my name is Angelina and im from Canada. I’m a big fan of your podcast. I originally found out about it on tiktok of course. They have taught me so much and inspired me even though I am only 14. I’m new to the whole podcast thing but I’ve only found yours the only interesting one because of how many different things you talk about. I’ve even convinced my parents to listen to the podcast and they even have been learning new things. I just wanted to let you know that you have a big impact on my life in the past couple of months. I know you don’t get paid for these podcast so I’m trying to spread the good word about it:) I will definitely be the first to buy your book! Oh and I absolutely love the intro. It always gets me pumped.

Hello thought i’d reach out. I’m 19 years old and only the lockdown has made me really consider both my physical mental and professional development. Just sat and watched your podcast with Ryan Herrington. Absolutely loved every minute of it from both sides of the table. Got so much value from it, and look forward to watching your next podcast. Would be great to do an EP2 and catch up with Ryan next year to see where the next 12 months have taken him! Will be tuning into every podcast now! Wish you the best for the year! Inspiring!

hey, I’m a 13 year old girl from Norway, and I love listening to your podcast. I listened to episode 52, and I just want to say that i’m really grateful for you talking about this. I have been feeling really depressed lately, bcs I feel like i’m not living for me anymore. I go to school, and after that i’ll start studying, and then get one of those normal and boring jobs that don’t even interest me. You explained it so good in that episode. It’s like i’m trapped. Everyone asked me what I wanna be when I grow old, but the truth is that I just want to be free. I want to do what I want. I just wanna live, and feel like my life matter, and that I can be able to make a difference. I just want to thank you for everything you do. I really appreciate it
