Consistently excellent

I always look forward to new episodes. The content is always excellent and well presented. Michael clearly lays out the entrepreneurial side balanced with the creative. I never delete these podcasts. I listen to them when I need motivation and help focusing on my vision. The guests are very inspirational and show what a successful creative is and does. I have already seen positive changes in my own endeavors.
