Absolutely Love

I absolutely love this podcast and here is why: it is chocked full of goodness!

I love it because we can listen to it as a family, no matter anyone’s age. Even though the topics might go over a child’s head or possibly have them lose interest in listening, none of that matters to me. What matters is the fact that we can listen to it without hiding it or turning stuff down while driving or even stop and change the station for them. No, I keep playing it alone or with others. I feel everyone is a leader in their own right, and it can begin at any point in their lives! It can (and should) be a personal thing, but if one so chooses to also lead others, well this podcast is a great place to be. I love the hosts and the guests that they speak to. I think it’s very important to hear different viewpoints and ways each person implements things while discussing leadership. Pretty cool.

If you need inspiration....

John Maxwell and his teachings are exactly what so many of us need right now. After listening to part I of 4 podcasts about John’s dad, not only was I inspired, I also felt mentored, positive and more hopeful than I’ve felt in a long time. Thank you and God Bless you, John.
