Awesome Channel - A Must Listen

I started listening to Episode 7: Podcast for the greater good with Caroline McCullough as I met Caroline at Chris Duckers mind blowing Tropical Think Tank event, she's a cool chick and I have been following her ever since.

I listened to the podcast and picked up some gold nuggets from it as I wish to start a podcast of my own. Since listening to this podcast I have worked my way through the others in this channel and I can honestly say I am going to be a regular listener.

The podcasts are fun, easy to listen to and with so many value bombs in them.

Awesome stuff Guys!
