Great podcast!

My husband and I were recommended this podcast by our daughter. We really enjoyed the first episode with Jacob Jaber and we’re looking forward to listening to the other ones.

James Fratzke ,

Thank you!

It has been so awesome doing these interviews. Thank you to everyone who has listened!

Mr. Tmnly ,

Frank, informal, and honest conversation from people who’ve been there.

“You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.”

- Friedrich Nietzsche

Insight, for those who seek it out, is worth far more than it’s weight in gold. What James has done here is something that most of us might never take the initiative to do and reach out to not only people whose accomplishments have already made it into the history books, but those that are actively grinding in the here and now.

Look past the format and structure. You’ll see people who are accomplishing great things with very busy schedules take a portion of their most valuable asset and invest it in this platform for knowledge that James has provided; and that alone speaks volumes.

Listen, learn, and take these insights and leverage them as tools in building the foundation of your own success.

- Mike
