Alex J Sanfilippo ,

Top quality podcast!

This is the type of podcast that I like to listen to. It’s action packed and straight to the point for people on a mission/journey to go from solo entrepreneur to CEO. A+ all around a great show!

A customer is me ,

Appreciated the genuine conversation

Honored to be a guest. Todd was a pleasure to talk with.

Redmanje ,

They try to imitate him

Many have tried and many have failed, but they can't recreate the magic that Todd conjures up with FFTCEO. Worth the consistent listen!!
