A Quality Podcast!

A friend told me about this podcast over a year ago, and I’m so glad she did. Since that time I’ve read books, started other podcasts, watched movies, and changed my opinion of people and businesses, all because of Frank. If you like learning interesting things and appreciate a host who can ask all the right questions, this is for you. Thank you, Frank Buckley, for broadening my horizons.
