Chase Neely Episode

perhaps on purpose he left me wanting more. The episode was the length i wanted, but the topic was broad. yes I would be quite happy with 90,000 subscribers! but Neely went beneath the numbers to the efficiencies and identified areas they were washing money on resources not needed. valuable reminder.
