Hi Jon Yelp is highly deceptive

Thank you! For this podcast! Jon 15 years in the business my Yelp reviews are over 2 stars lower then my google reviews I have never paid for their services although they have reached out countless times. I have several 5 star that are not “recommended to be shown” the worst pictures and reviews are always at the top thanks to Yelp.

Good Supporters of Business Owners

The show is fun but this podcast is also a joy to listen to. Jon’s enthusiasm for supporting others looking to improve their situations and generally great business talk.

Great Podcast

Fantastic podcast! Gained even more respect for Jon due to the Trump interview. Speaks volumes that Joe “sippy cup” Biden didn’t even respond. Don’t mind the crybaby trump haters. It doesn’t take much to make them melt like snowflakes. Thanks Jon!
