Conscious_Marketing_&_PR ,

Highly recommend!

Great podcast with content that you can immediately apply to your life and mindset.

Binogrigio ,

The best podcast!

I’ve been listening to this podcast from the beginning and it continues to get better and better. So many amazing guest and so much valuable info that keeps me coming back and constantly improving. Thanks to the team for all the hard work!

Just have some integrity ,

Yikes

How embarrassing for Wachob. Guest Gabrielle Lyons spews misinformation and he can’t display the humility to either comment on the backlash and/or simply remove the misinformation.
Either way, the company’s articles and podcast episodes have devolved mostly into clickbait and sound bytes to shill their in-house products. Not what it used to be and credibility is in shambles after this episode
