  1. Hello! I am a huge fan of your podcast. Just discovered the podcast a couple days ago and have listened to them all already! The stories you and your guests share are so inspiring and the advice that I get are so inspiring. My dream is to open an e-commerce shop in the near future and this is the biggest source of motivation and energy for me. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Please keep this podcast going!
