He speaks from the heart
This is my most favoritest podcast. I eagerly await each new episode. I check almost everyday to see if a new episode has been released. If everyone grew/ran/shared/taught their network marketing business the way Richard teaches, I think the anti-mlm folks would be hard pressed to come up with reasons to dislike this industry and those of us who LOVE it. Thank you, Richard!!! I am heading to Facebook now to watch my Daily Dose of Salt!!❤️❤️
I love hearing the amazing stories of the leaders and their golden nuggets they share.
Top show for this industry
I get just as much and more from Richard on these than from his guests. Always fascinating questions and content we all can learn from. These podcasts are really an excellent education. A must listen if you are serious about learning from others. Insights are all over these interviews. Thanks Richard!
