The Good Luck Club

Hey internet, I'm Simon Squibb, the host at the Good Luck Club. I believe luck is an ingredient that's necessary for a successful life! Whatever you're starting, building, or shipping...I'm here to tell you that WITHOUT LUCK YOU'RE NOT GONNA MAKE IT. I've been testing my luck as an entrepreneur since I was 15, I've had plenty of failures and successes, and I'm fascinated by things that I couldn't control.

In each episode I'll invite a guest to share their stories about luck; the good and the bad, and together we'll test my theory about Luck's role.... Show More
