Very Informative

I am coming from the white collar, corporate America world and bought into a water restoration franchise. Learning so much valuable information from this podcast. While our franchise has resources, it’s a newer franchise and there are some gaps. We are running on a very lean budget and I am guilty of so many issues they address. I literally learn something I can apply to my business each episode. Fantastic and much appreciated!

Fantastic Podcast!

Although I’m not in the blue collar industry I learn so much from Eric and Larry! They are entertaining, informative and inspirational. Truly, the tips that they provide can help improve any business. When I listen to them time flies because I’m so engaged by their conversations.
