My new favourite podcast!

Insightful, impactful, concise. More, please! 😁

5% valuable insights, 95% sewage

I really enjoyed some of the ideas in this podcast. The intent is decent enough, but the delivery is so odious that I couldn’t get to the end of it.

Avoid this and read David Allen’s ‘Getting Things Done’ instead.

Great insights!

Excellent information and ideas, every business owner and entrepreneur can benefit from this. As a side note, from a Tinnitus Sufferer, the intro is really loud compared to the spoken word, which makes it uncomfortable for me when one podcast ends and the next one finishes, so unable to listen on headphones. Cheers!
