Scared the heck out of me!
Great episode! Good to get to know Mike better. When it was over, however, the loud explosion scared the heck out of me! I had my air buds in and I think I jumped off my chair thinking something bad was happening outside or to my house.
Just listened to Nathan Croxford‘s story. I love how you guys are so concerned about the families you serve. I like the idea of following up every 2 to 3 years on my estate planning because things do change. Way to go you two!
