Absolutely Helpful & Just What I Needed

This was such a great podcast. I wrote so many notes and then realized that the manuscript was available. But it was worth all the writing because it was just that helpful. The breakdown of the value ladder, goals, conversions, and subscribers were so helpful as I have been looking for a step by step process to get me going. This was easy to understand, and worth all the rewinds I did so that I fully understood what was being expressed. I’m working on creating my value ladder as a result of this podcast, I can’t wait to see the benefit of me subscribing and applying what I learned. Kee up the great work and many blessings.
