Guy & Ilan Ferdman run Satori Prime. Their company has a bold mission of influencing 100 million people by 2020. Not too shabby, eh? Talk about passion, these 2 have it by the bucket-loads. In this Ilan and Guy Ferdman interview, we cover the importance of personal connections, how the podcast has been an important vehicle for their business, and why the universe has a funny way of showing you what you need to do. Yeah, we’re all over the map here…and it’s a good thing!
- 10:00 – Ilan Ferdman created his podcast initially as cliff notes about other podcasts.
