Inspired by the ideology behind One Red Paperclip, Free for Fifteen is the boundless search for book recommendations, learning, and growth throughout my network.

Knowing how to begin the process of personal development and growth is often intimidating and overwhelming, with more emphasis on figuring out where to go than on jumping in and taking the first step.

Free for 15 sets out to leverage the power of books and network effects to demonstrate that all you need is a curious attitude and a couple of minutes to get the ball rolling.

My podcast is intended to serve as a documentation of my personal journey, and hopefully a source of inspiration for the start of yours. Knowledge, information, and progress compound...don't be afraid to start small and ask more questions.
