Must Listen

I’ve recently had the honor of being a guest on Joe’s podcast and was completely blown away by his ability to navigate the conversation. Our conversation seemed effortless all due to Joe’s ability to listen and share insights in a very timely manner. As a fellow podcast host, I can say it with confidence that those skills do not come without hours of hard work and determination. If you’re looking to connect with someone who genuinely tries to create spaces where others are heard and understood, Joe is the person for that!
