Great conversation and great stories

I had the honor and privilege of being a guest on Dr. Gary’s podcast recently. He was an excellent host. We have lots in common and shared some great stories that each came with a key lesson. Gary made sure the lesson came through to deliver solid value for his listeners. As I listened to several other episodes, it became clear that he has a real gift for extracting these kinds of golden nuggets of wisdom for his audience. It was a great experience and I hope I get the chance to guest on his show again!
