The latest episode of The Everyday Millionaire Podcast is now online!
“We should put the human being back in the centre. If we do, it’s better for our society, but we’re also going to create better people, more happy, that are going to give so much more to our companies. We said earlier multiple times, that passion, love for what you do is indispensable.” -Mauro Porcini
