Encouragement Listener ,

Great content

I had the opportunity to be a guest on Small-Time Leaders as well as have Michael on my podcast. Michael offers years of life knowledge to the audience in a comfortable conversation that allows great messages to formulate. The insight Michael derives from the guests really bring the information to a great level.

Xitlali arual ,

Sad turn of events.

Jacob Devlin was interviewed in this podcast. I believe that, unbeknownst to Mr. Alan Tate, he posed as a successful prior military. Jacob Devlin was found guilty by a military judge sitting alone of false official statement, drunk and disorderly conduct, wrongful use of a controlled substance, wrongful possession of a controlled substance and wrongful distribution of a controlled substance. He was sentenced to a dismissal and confinement for 11 months. Pursuant to a pretrial agreement, the convening authority may not approve confinement in excess of 9 months. He is a phony and a disgrace. Beware of this awful human.

Fanning -Chrisity ,

Great concept

Listening to people give thanks to their leaders makes me reflect about the people about in my life.
