    Inside Look : The LTD Instructors

    Inside Look : The LTD Instructors

    Steve Eckert and Ray “Cash” Care join together just 1 day after conducting a wildly successful LTD Program, where instead of 1 team with a team of employees, good friend Sharran Srivatsaa brought together around 30 CEO’s and Owners of varying businesses and industries. After such an event, they had to get together to talk about it!

@Businessteachers ,

CHANGED MY LIFE 📍

Started listening to the podcast when i was just getting into entrepreneurship, within 12 months im making more than the job i truly hated, i can attribute this to the podcast.

Im 20 years old and Bedros and Craig feel like my Much older brothers.
They help me be the man i want to be.

Bedros and Craig help me to become the Father i will be one day, help me to understand the world and what makes us happy, helps me avoid pitfalls that can be made on the entrepreneurial journey.

But most importantly, they teach you how to think like them...
Being able to think like entrepreneurs that have been in the trenches for decades, is a very powerful thing.

Dont think these guys are just good at money, they are good at LIFE, living true fulfilling and amazing lives where they make lots of positive impact on the world.

Being able to learn from them everyday, in all areas of life, is a blessing.

Much love ❤️
