Dan Delivers Every Time 🏆

I’m new and hesitated to start listening to another podcast because I already listen to so many - but this one is a non-negotiable. No fluff, Dan masterfully extracts knowledge from his guest and has you on your way with more value than you could’ve anticipated! Great show, Dan!

Wisdom in 5

Absolutely love this podcast! Wisdom in a nutshell with great insight in less than 10 minutes!!! And the words from his guests stick! For instance been thinking about living part-time in Virginia myself and Hilarie Burton just provided the encouragement that I needed! I am not used to small towns, but I can do it!! Thank you Dan :-).
