Great concept

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

Michael is amazing!

I interviewed Michael while back for my own podcast and I followed his advice. “Ask for advise not for a job” he said. His book The White Shirt and my conversation with him helped me strategically change my career and get the job I had been dreaming for. Highly recommended this podcast and reading his book. Thank you Michael- Romina Muhametaj
