would give 10 stars if possible

Chris is amazing, his podcast is amazing, I am using the stories and tips like drinking vitamin water for my entrepreneurial side. Such a great amount of info, love the short format, love all the stories, love the big heart and batty humor, love the way you extract the take home messages for us, love your way of analyzing the listeners' questions, love the way you've developed and added to the structure over the years. This podcast is so well thought-out. Seriously, who needs to listen to folks yammering on for an hour? So easy to digest, I typically listen to several in a row as I drive. As for the ads that some people are complaining about, may I suggest you start listening from the very beginning when there weren't any ads, since the earlier shows from 2017 are still highly relevant and full of great content for newcomers to the podcast. Personally I feel that anyone who puts this much effort, skill, knowledge and heart into helping other peope fulfill their dreams and get more income streams going, deserves a big ol' pot of gold. :-) Thanks Chris. Someday I'll tell you what I'm working on. ;-)

Great content, ads are disruptive

I love the concise, helpful motivating content! Unfortunately the ads before and after the introduction are very long and repetitive. I only listen when I can skip past the first ad, intro, and second ad to get straight to the content.
