BYU is the best!!!!!!!!!!! ,

Loved this show!!

I recently had the opportunity to be interviewed on this show and I loved my time with Jeff and Sheldon. They were so easy to talk to and we connected so easily. The content was great and the relationship even better.

KLB🌷 ,

Now I’m dreaming like a kid!

Jeff and Sheldon’s mini-actions often give me the boost to do something I really want instead of falling into patterns that don’t serve me. One little step daily towards my big dreams feels good! Thanks guys!

A must-listen for “real” people

I love how Jeff & Sheldon share real stories of how real people can get things done.

So many of the self-help gurus out there don’t have kids, spouses, family, church, and civic obligations — and the lifestyles they advocate for are simply unrealistic for real people. I love how practical, down to earth, and realistic this podcast is. It helps real people make real improvement.

I highly recommend it!
