Though I am not an entrepreneur, I still found the insight provided by Daray and the show as a whole to be extremely useful. You get a combination of concrete steps that one can take to be more productive and financially secure PLUS some tools for self-reflection; I loved that he brings up limiting beliefs and how to overcome them. A great listen for anyone hoping to improve their life- whether that be with a new job, a new business, or just a new app.

- Great show, very informative!October 18, 2018 by Jwynt from United States
This is a great show, the hosts is very informative and the information that he is presenting is also accurate. If your an entrepreneur you can take definitely take notes or reassure what you have already heard. The host, “plants the seed and more or less leaves you with the tools to maintain the garden.” Great show!
- Informative and EngagingOctober 10, 2018 by Kaiser0075 from Australia
I’m not normally one for self-help podcasts - even those that focus on assisting their listeners to make money. But Daray and his team have struck an excellent balance between being informative and remaining engaging without swaying over into being preachy. The guests are also often excellent with the highlight, for me, being the former FBI hostage negotiator. Do give this one a shot.

- A Fantastic Resource for Success in Wealth.October 7, 2018 by Bowden1818 from United States
Extremely informative podcast that I recommend everyone interested in making wealth should listen to without haste The episode I listen to featured Ryan G. Wright, a Real Estate Entrepreneur who goes into great details about Hard Money Lending, along with the good and bad of that source. Daray’s skills as interviewer and host were very impressive. You can feel the confidence that he knows what he’s talking about. If you want to be successful then Show Up, Show Up On Time, Show Up Prepared and listen to the BTM show.

- A Compelling Podcast that Will Shift Your MindsetOctober 5, 2018 by Crystal7174 from United States
As someone who has tried to succeed as an entrepreneur for more decades than I’d like to admit, I found the advice and interviews in Before the Millions compelling. I especially enjoyed Episode 73: Money Isn’t Everything with Omar Khan. It wasn’t until recently that I found my groove and what sets my soul on fire. How important is money in this journey? What about time? Is there such a thing as work-life balance? This episode helped shift my mindset. It was raw, honest, and deeply, DEEPLY, resonating. Deray is a fantastic host who keeps you engaged and hooked on every word. Highly recommended?
