A Rose Among Thorns

Loved the EFM episode. I would say that Kim was “a rose among thorns” for that interview, but all the Entrepreneurial Family Men were so honoring and so much fun to listen to....and the bond they share reminds me of the laughter of the Trinity. If I weren’t already training with PCCI to become a coach, I would sign up immediately after hearing Chris M, Chris N, Mike and Jamie talk about the freedom and fulfillment found in this field, where the harvest is ripe.
