I run a lawn care business so everyday I’m mowing I put on your podcast and listen to it while I work all day. It’s gotten me through the last 3 months and I’m hoping I got enough episodes left to get me through the next 3.
Great stories and lots of info. Ramsey is a world traveler and is full of knowledge and experience. I don’t miss an episode.
Hands down best podcast out there.
