Authenticity-supported, Wisdom-driven Mentorship

Their authenticity and clarity in sharing without a “live audience,” providing insights and practical solutions to perennial issues in this domain is evidence of their experience, giftedness, access, and skill. I’m intrigued by what these gentlemen have put together and I’m optimistic about the foreseeable future of this podcast. Positively, they’ve already started repurposing partial episodes, clearly identifying them as cuts and not granting them the nomenclature of a new episode. That’s appreciated and evidence of their recognition of some listeners’ desire for shorter-length, focused information pulls. Thus, the episode length may require listening at higher speeds if your only concern is actionable advice (or reviewing their time stamp table of contents), as they clearly articulate on other platforms that the podcast is not aiming to deliver the same value proposition as their core learning products. However, you will learn through the more informal podcast, but differently and different important concepts. Again, with three full-episodes now available, this looks to be a unique creation and worthwhile subscription and weekly listen. Thank you for producing it.
