Me, Myself & I : ) ,

Thank You & a suggestion/ request

Jake, Damien. I have been a listener from the very beginning. Have learned so much from the various guests over the past two years and from them read numerous books they have either written or recommended (including your ‘high performance’). So enriching and valuable. Thanks

A few guest request/ suggestions:

1. ( NBA Champion Toronto Raptors head coach Nick Nurse - who incidentally spent years in the British basketball league). He is a phenomenal coach and widely respected and followed. Also a recent author of a book called Raptors Rapture.

2. Robin Sharma - so many books. say no more. One of my favourite authors/ speakers. I can hear his words/ wisdom echoed through so many of your guests words insights. I swear they all read and emulate his material.

Thanks

Robert Dixon Toronto.

High performance

Jake and Damian,
You guys have just nailed this with the quality of the people you’ve selected and the thoughtful way that you bring out the best from them! I’m all the way over on Vancouver Island and I’m avidly sharing with all of my network. Thank you so much and we’ll done again!😊👍👍

Pass by this podcast ,

Needs improvement

This is just another ‘how-to’, self-help, listen to somebody famous trying to give their motivation podcast that offers little in the way of useful information to me. I’ve listened to dozens of episodes, and haven’t saved a single one, meaning that I’m getting little to nothing out of it.
