Profoundly Influential for the Young Business Leader

Adam Kaufman has done a phenomenal job brining together some of the most humble and charismatic leaders across different industries. There is a wealth of wisdom and great ideas to be taken away from the conversations had on this podcast. I’d highly recommend this to the young professional looking to pursue their dream of becoming excellent in their respective field.

A must listen for business leaders

I really have enjoyed the new Podcast – I really can’t say enough about your passion and commitment to sharing/encouraging those that are humble servant leaders. Really important message that I think is greatly relevant in our age of distraction (social media, 24/7 connectivity) – we are ironically more connected than ever but I see that the ease and volume of connectivity has distracted many from being present and making a deeper impact by taking a purpose driven approach (which requires depth and focus). Your guests all have great perspectives on how to focus and properly balance those different aspects of an evolving and complex world (work, family, purpose etc).
