Helpful, informative, relatable!

I started listening to Aaron’s podcast as I am in the process of starting my own online business. I have found the information to be very practical and easy to understand. Aaron stays on subject and gives great examples from his own experience of things that have and haven’t worked for him. It can be a daunting time starting your own business but having this podcast to listen to and take advice from makes me feel more confident that I am making the right decision. I often refer back to the podcast and listen to some episodes twice to take notes and follow up on suggestions that Aaron makes. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and experience with us.
