So much info and ideas

I love this podcast! I’ve been listening for about a year now and have had a home/garage haunt for 2 years. 2021 will be 3 years. With covid we are currently planning for the worst but excepting the best of situations! Thanks to these guys, we know what to look out for and how to market!!
