Thank you!

I’m so excited that you two are doing a podcast! So many entrepreneurs that I follow rely on Lives and videos, most of which I can’t watch because of very bad internet and phone service. I can, however, have podcasts download to my phone so I can listen without all the buffering and interruptions. Thank you for sharing!
