In this candid first podcast, Simon Phillips and Brad Lindsay talk about where they started. For Simo, his starting point was one many of us can’t relate to.

From starting a million dollar business in his 20s to ending up $200,000 in debt and moving back in with his parents. He had to pick himself up and restart from rock bottom.

Brad’s story isn’t quite as turbulant, but he did have to rely on his network and integrity to get Supply Chain Solutions off the ground.

While perhaps not as dramatic, it’s nonetheless very relatable. The meeting between Brad and Simo turned out to be very fortuitous, but how did they get there? That’s the question everyone wants to know.
