No b.s., if you're in any way interested in success in any industry, this show is absolutely a must-listen. Created by author, speaker, and mentor, Peter J. Voogd, the "Young Entrepreneur Lifestyle 2.0" podcast immediately struck a serious nerve of interest in me as I was researching for creating a podcast of my own. Honestly, I was never a huge fan of talk radio, so I really had no previous interest in podcasts at all, until I realized that value it could bring to my audience and the reputation it could build for my brand.
When I finally sold myself on the idea of creating "Hard Talk with Jason Hardin", I figured the best way to start learning how to create a podcast was to listen to some. So, using Spotify, I began to listen to some. At first, I didn't know what to look up or put much thought into what the show was about. I was really just paying attention to how the show was technically formatted. I was primarily interested in whether-or-not they had a theme song, if the host sounded like they read from a script or spoke off the head, if they had background music, and how they promoted products. What I quickly learned was that there were countless ways to produce a podcast and that I didn't really learn anything.
For some real guidance on how I should create my show, I had to narrow my search. Since I'm a young entrepreneur that wanted to create a show about what I know, I decided to search Spotify's podcast section for "young entrepreneur", and that's when I discovered "Young Entrepreneur Lifestyle 2.0" and was immediately hooked from the very first episode.
From jump, I found that the show was straight to the point. At the time, I was still more interested in the format rather than the content, however Voogd's delivery of such relative and tactical information in rapid succession completely commanded my attention. There was virtually no fluff or filler and just all tips and facts that could be quickly applied to advance in any career or business. Those who take mental notes don't have to wait long for original powerfully accurate quotes that resonate long after the episode is over.
Voogd's unique way of speaking from a position of experience and authority without any long wind, talking down, or hard sells, kept me engaged and made me a quick fan. What's even more impressive are the uncensored no-bullshit interviews he has with some of the most innovative and successful people of our time and generation, such as Dean Graziosi, Ryan Garcia, Romeo Miller, Randall Pich, Ryan Blair, and so many more. Peter's questions dig deep into exactly what created the fortunes and influence of each and every one of his prominent guests. From how to build a dominating apparel brand to the secrets of breaking sales records, the jewels dropped on Y.E.L. 2.0 by Peter and his friends can change the life of anyone willing to put in the work.
I personally have already listened to every Y.E.L. 2.0 show and can honestly say that even the episodes from 2016 are still filled with knowledge and information that really could change the game today for someone. I'm not easily sold on claims, but when Voogd says that he prides himself on giving away game that most people charge thousands, I strongly believe it. So much so, that I just had to purchase his book, "6 Months To 6 Figures". I'm at chapter 6 now, and I can already recommend this book to anyone interested in leveling up in their life in any way, regardless how old they are or what area they want to dominate in their life.
