Practical Advice and a lot of Common Sense

Thank you for producing a show that provides practical advice and a common sense approach. This show has helped me be more grounded emotionally. As a fellow podcast host of my own show about business I also learned a few tips by listening to your format. All around great value.

Waste of time

This host must spend 80% of the episode talking about his life and experience and the other 20% loosely touching on the topic advertised. If you are triggered by narcissistic energy, skip it. This podcast is his therapy, not yours.
