Hello. Hello. Hello. This is Gresh from the I Am CEO podcast and super excited to get to come to you to talk a little bit more about what we've been doing throughout this year, which is covering all the different aspects and the common things that we heard during our podcast.

We did over 1600 episodes and there are certain common pillar types of principles that you can learn from business that I started to see throughout these interviews. And what we did was start to compile these and really break down our interviews this year based off of that.

So as you went through each of the interviews, you start to see that, okay, there were common things that were said over and over again. And what I actually did at the beginning of this year was actually still this down into those 16 different pillars.
