I am always watching Michael
To the one star review what are you doing to be more active in the industry. To Michael, I just finished listening to the last two episodes. Keep up the great work. Yes the conversation do tend to get a little off topic but it stays contained in the industry. Keep up the great work and you’ll improve with time.
