Walk On Wonder 89 ,

Dream Happy Hour Setup

I would say this is the best financial podcast out there and a dream happy hour setup.

I’ve learned a ton and it helps keep me grounded in my investing plan and helps block out the noise.

My only critique is that it’s too professional. I wish a few whiskeys were drank during the pod so I could hear heavier Long Island accents and hear Tim Dillon like sales stories.

Face blowing Podcast

Always look forward to starting my Fridays with this pod. The guests are always top notch that bring a wealth of knowledge from their field. Keep up the great work!

High Octane

The knowledge I have gained from this dynamic duo -Josh and Michael is remarkable. The well chosen guests add to each week’s unique experience. I feel as if I’ve gained a coach in my pocket to keep me grounded during these challenging market times.I so can’t wait to rock my workout with each new episode. Would love to take you to dinner at one of our city’s coolest restaurants with unmatched sky high views. Keep crushing it!
