Great Show for Ex-Corporate Professionals Who Are Going Solo

David is a great interviewer, but even better… he has wonderful guests who give valuable advice that cover a wide range of relevant, important topics. The varied backgrounds, experience and specialties make this show a must-listen if you’re starting your own consulting practice or are looking to improve/grow your existing one.
