Valuable practical advice
This is one of my “go to” podcasts when I need a shot of inspiration or motivation in business.
Michael, Megan and the team offer valuable, practical advice that helps business owners and professionals do better at work and home.
I really appreciate all the insights I get from listening to the team.
Just got better!
I’ve been a long-term listener to this podcast and I keep coming back for the straightforward, well-explained business advice. The latest episode “How to Elevate Your Public Speaking with Pat Quinn” was definitely the best yet. It might have been the fact that I didn’t expect a different format to usual (I do enjoy the usual format), but having a “live” pitch and critique was great. I’ve done that myself in business school and it’s nerve wracking, so I’m hugely grateful to Pastor John for sharing that experience. I think I’m a pretty good public speaker, but I learned some really interesting and hugely useful tips to use in the future. Even more than usual, I’m looking forward to the next episode.
Brilliant business advice
Michael and Megan bring practical, interesting business & personal coaching through their fantastic podcast, Lead to Win. Have binge listened to many episodes over & over! Have 2 of Michaels audio books and a Full Focus Planner convert. Thank you both for such amazing content! UK listener.
