Was lucky to be a guest on the show and had a fantastic time. John is an incredible host and puts on a wonderful production. We had an authentic and insightful conversation. I've become a listener now as well.

Being equipped in every season!

When I got promoted from employee to entrepreneur, John became one of my first “voices” and has been a great help no matter what I face. This is new podcast is so rad! There are so many takeaways in each interview and episode, but they are skillfully presented for you to implement right away in your business. These are wild times, no doubt. But this podcast is perfectly timed to walk with you through it. Thank you for this resource!
