10 Actionable Insights From Our First 10 Episodes (Part 1)
Today we are doing something a little different. Instead of having an interview, it’s the middle of summer, a number of potential guests are on vacation as are we off and on the last couple of wheels, so we thought it would be a good time to ten actionable insights from our first ten interviews.
A little bit of a midway checkpoint to see some of the themes that you can take with you and implement into your business. We’ve called these out along the way and thought this would be a good checkpoint to walk through them, talk about them, and then also play some of these clips. These are some of the most important learnings that we’ve seen, even just in the small handful of interviews we’ve done so far. 
We’ve identified ten different trends that we’ve seen over these first ten interviews. So we’re going to name them and our Producer Cameron will play clips of the examples that we cite as we go through. 
If you like this show, if you haven’t listened to the podcast yet, this is a good starting episode because it’s a sampler pattern for all of the shows we’ve done so far. So you’re going to be able to duck in and out of guests we’ve had, pick the ones you like, and go back and listen to those shows. 
Without further adieu, let’s get onto our ten points:
