The Troy Farkas Show

Our 20s are a critical time in our lives and together on this show, my guests and I discuss things that all millennials care about: upward career mobility, mental health, self-improvement strategies, work/life balance, social media, traveling, dating, financial advice and SO much more. Sometimes it's a young entrepreneur. Other days, it's a professional athlete, a TikTok star, or maybe just an everyday twenty-something who's trying to figure it out. New episodes weekly. Follow the show wherever you get your podcasts, find it on YouTube and visit TheTroyFarkasShow.com for more information.
