Great info. Love how Mary and Mike communicate clearly and directly to our audience as missionaries. There isn’t much for our audience and it makes it hard. This is perfect. Only wish there was more content now! It’s been 7 months! Can’t wait for SEASON 2!
Listened to the first season twice!
These last two days I have spent about 12 hours in my car. During that time I took the opportunity to litsen to season 1 of this podcast. I enjoyed it so much that I listened to podcast on my drive down to my desitnation and my drive back. For an auditory learner such as myself this was a perfect resource!
There were several questions I have asked myself as I lead my nonprofit, however, there have been few out there to answer those questions. This podcast did exactly that, as well as answering some questions I didn't know I had. There are very few quality, affordable resources available for both large and small nonprofits and this is one of them.
You owe it to yourself to listen to this podcast if you lead a nonprofit or work in marketing, sales, or the branding of a nonprofit.
