Great insights and life lessons

I have followed Daron K Roberts for some time and caught his pocast interview of Bryan Carrington, Director of Recruiting for Texas. The podcast enables you to learn life lessons from his guests while gaining insights into their background on a personal level. It also brings a cultural perspective that is valuable for anyone to hear. One of the best podcasts I have heard, a must listen.

Live this podcast!

A tribe called yes is extremely refreshing and real. Hearing a wide variety of “ personal case studies” of life transition stories is incredibly interesting and motivating especially in today’s world that answers most things with a tweet, Instagram pic or Facebook 👍🏻. These are “real life stories.” Keep up the good work DKR!
