After the the Hollywood episode was screened in front of a live audience, a brief Q&A session was held from the red carpet. Members in attendance came with questions about production, and learned lessons from spending time with leading entrepreneurs across the nation.

Shawn Vela responded by saying, “One of the most reinforced lessons I learned from filming the top entrepreneurs in the nation is that if you can dream it, you can make it a reality.” Referring to 8 months prior when he received an email from Greg pitching the idea for the show, he went on to say, “Every entrepreneur in the show including Greg and Brandon, dreamed something up and turned it into a reality against the odds.”
