Huge Amounts of Value
This podcast, simply put, is brilliant. Warren is an excellent interviewer and conversationalist, and his level of genuine intrigue results in him getting enormous amounts of value out of guests. Massive fan!
Very Thought Provoking
I really like the combination of emotional and business thinking that Warren brings to these podcasts. It seems he can always get his guest to answer both and therefore the insight is fantastic. Looking forward to many more.
I listened to the podcast you recorded with my sister Beverley Densham this week while out walking with my dogs and grandbaby.
I thought you asked some great questions that got her story out into the open.
Real wealth is often hard fought and precious and I believe reflected in this episode.
Ps: I think you would LOVE Bev’s Mindfulness Pilates if you attended a regular class Warren. I’m just off to class now - I have been taught by her since 1999!
