    The freaking awesome books Ammar is listening to on Audible:
    -Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg
    -Willpower by Roy Baumeister

    Matt's Book Recommendations:
    -Ego is the Enemy by Ryan Holiday
    -Born To Run by Chris Mcdougall
    -Rework by Jason Fried
    -Start Something That Matters by Blake Mycoskie
    -The Promise of a Pencil by Adam Braun

    We've always wanted to do an epic road trip to Mexico. But we figured it'd be even more awesome if we got a stranger to come along with us and take part in the adventure. So we did just that. It was surreal getting into a brand new country with a brand new friend.

    I appreciate that you don't put a lot of ads on your channel but you absolutely can/deserve to monetize your channel more. You all work hard on content and shouldn't have to struggle. You are so humble, genuine, and worldly. Keep up the great work!
