Very Worth Your Attention

I was a guest on John’s show earlier this year after learning about him from a mutual friend. He volunteered to help me get my own podcast, How’d it Happen, going and improving and provided me with seriously good advice.

I’ve signed up for his Smart Business Revolution email tips and implemented many of the free ideas he provides. You should too.
