Inspirational to say the least!! Listen and GROW!!

I listened to this podcast for the first time today.
Man am I glad I did!
Having a platform where entrepeneurs can share what's worked, their ethos on business, life, and growth is just what I needed!
Picture if you will dropping a pebble into a completely still body of water. The ripples move out in all directions and grows to encompass a greater area. I've often thought and said that if we thought of ourselves as pebbles and others not just as the water, but the individual molecules therein, each action can have PROFOUND impact. This is what iSmart Podcast is, a pebble dropped daily into a pond, postively affecting countless listeners, businesses, and people. I became a daily listener today, and if you own a business, want to own a business, or just want to grow , i highly recommend giving it a listen! Tom Rogers, the host asks stimultating questions that dig deeper and help to provide a great illustration of his guests without getting in their way which is truly an art form!
