J. Barshop ,

Awesome show, highly recommend!

Josh is phenomenal at expertly extracting those bits of gold listeners are looking for.

He and his world-class guests provide some incredibly compelling content on how to effectively grow your business without draining your well-being and bank account.

Highly recommend listening and subscribing to Founder Chats if you want the knowledge AND mindsets to grow into the person you know you’re capable of becoming (and reach all of your overall business goals as a result)!

To the point

Love the candid nature of josh’s interviews. It’s refreshing to not focus so hard on what people do, and focus instead on who they are as a person.

Too much interrupting

Good guests, interesting subjects, but you’re interrupting your guests way too much. When you ask a question, please let them answer.
