Ideas, insights and implementable steps OH MY!

With almost every episode I find myself having to make tons of notes. Even with the episodes I don’t connect with, I always go away with at least one nugget of wisdom in how I can do things differently and in a more impactful way.
I love the creative way Jesse runs the podcast by doing things different by playing games and getting the guest in a different state of mind.
If you want ideas, insights that will blow your mind 🤯 and insights you can use right away... than this podcast is for you.
