Thank you for continuing to inspire and educate

A number of years ago I had the pleasure of being involved with the Strategic Coach program and found it to be exceptional and beneficial. I expect to be back in the program in the future and find this podcast to be a reminder of the value Dan Sullivan and his team continue to bring to entrepreneurs. I especially like his attitude to continuing to grow as a person, a contributor and leader. Thank you Dan and Shannon for taking the time to share your time and your thoughts. I also really like the structure of the delivery.
