Show is on point and amazing for leaders and entrepreneurs

J'Mel G. ,

Access to the information - Granted!

When I think about the wealth gap, I think about the lack of access to the information. The social proof podcast is a GAME CHANGER! David and Donni are high level industry leaders and with diverse knowledge as entrepreneurs. What I love the most about the guest is they are high level entrepreneurs who hold nothing back in sharing information that can dramatically change your life if you execute on the information.
