I’m an MD in the ER with 30 years experience. Why do I listen to your podcast?
You have terrific integrity while interviewing the great Architects of our time. Thank you for bringing the best out of these individuals. Personal stories and discussion of values, thoughtful questions, and your constant regard for your guests keeps me coming for more.
Every service business has very similar issues and areas that can be expanded such as customer acquisition, employee development, diversification, financial cultivation and values expression.
Your discussions are highly relevant to our changing times.
Thank you thank you
