Helped Boost My Business

My business is doing awesome this summer and I would not be where I am today without the content you guys put out regularly. I am able to gain the confidence in myself and my business from listening to the conversations Chris has with other drone pilots from all over the world. Drone technology is still new and we are all trying to figure it out together, thankfully we can all learn from each others successes and failures both shared on this podcast.

Thank you so much!

Couch to sUAS operator

I wasn't really even thinking about drones or droning when autocorrect took my intended query 'Wrong' and replaced it with 'Drone' in the apple podcast search bar. Before I could tap the little x on the search bar to retype my query, the quirky animation of The Drone Trainer podcast attracted my attention, and before I could get distracted again, I was curiously motivated by this guy named Chris saying..."Let's Go!". Before I could figure out where Chris was taking me, I started to feel quite comfortable listening to his northern English accent and deliberate cadence. Further, Chris' enthusiasm for his subject and attention to his audience's allowed me to accept the challenge of listening, learning something new and becoming motivated to find out more as a result. Honestly, the subject matter was a little technical for my taste but for the rhythm Chris was able to create with his guest, despite his experience and/or disposition. Essentially, Chris' podcast mission statement: To have a conversation with the listener, kept and keeps me wanting to have another conversation with Chris and his guests. Since my inaugural TDT conversation, I decided to GO-out and pass the Part 107, then GO-buy a DJI Phantom 3 Advanced to GO-out and develop a passion for drones. However, if I had to narrow it down to one thing...The reason why I tapped the follow button on TDT podcast after listing to my 1st episode...it was the unmistakabke quality of passion I recognized and felt listening to Chris depose his guest as an equal. Unlike other podcast Hosts I'd listened-to, Chris not only allowed his guest to relate their experience but he has the charisma and humility to know what to ask and how to ask it, beyond the scripted Q&A. For what it's worth, I'm making money with my drone because I had that first conversation with Chris and his Guest on TDT podcast...Every episode from then to now has become increasingly relavent to fostering my drone-passion and I feel ironically blessed by autocorrect in that I would likely never have had a reason to prod the drone community without Chris' passion for drones, his guests, his audience and the comversation he aims to keep innocent. Keep it up Chris! You are truly a steward to the drone community and we are more of a community because of...Let's Go!
