Inspirational podcast!

Loved it! I had my notepad out, catching so many great tips. You asked great questions and Brett did not disappoint. He’s an inspiration, and a great example of reminding all of us to “get better” every day. 👍🙌

Thank you

I came across Daves podcast a few years back
while I was going through a tough time. Dave
worked with me through it all and got me through
some really tough times. If your serious about
getting better then I suggest talking to Dave, it
was the best thing I did.

Wonderful podcast

I met Dr. Dave during physical therapy after a bad accident and he told me about his podcast. I was hooked from the first episode!! His podcast and his demeanor are great. He has definitely helped me achieve my goals just by listening and reading his book. I’d recommend this to anyone
