🔥👣 Firewalking - Passage to Profit Show

I just had the honor and privilege to be a featured guest on the "Passage to Profit Show" hosted by the Master himself Richard Gearhart.

Love this show and love their unique format.

Richard's team is super organized and when the mic's go "live" you know you are a very special podcast.

If you are lucky enough to be invited on this show you better seize the opportunity and bring your "A" game.

Easily one of my favorite guest appearances.
