Dan Sanchez is a growth junkie

I’ve know Dan for nearly 10 years and he’s the kind of guy who‘s ALWAYS growing. Reading books, listening to podcasts, and getting BETTER. Not only learning but also applying into his work, blogs, websites, and now a podcast. He’s growth in action.

I don’t work in a non-profit, but I’m subscribed because I want to learn and grow and I know I’ll be able to apply what he’s sharing and what he gets from his guests.

If you want to grow, you’ll subscribe too.
