Great Podcast For Any Contractor

I just found this podcast and I’m loving it! Listened to a couple today and got some great takeaways. Really enjoyed your interview with Shawn. Keep them coming.

Deebeenyc ,

I HIGHLY recommend you listen to the roofing success podcast

While there are a few roofing contractor podcasts out there, the roofing success podcast is by far the most value driven podcast for roofing professionals. If you run a roofing company, you’ll walk away with a few gold tips in every episode. Great job Jim!
