Excellent Host!

I was recently on Tim’s show, The Profit Express, and I just want to say that I’ve been on the show a few times and every time, I am so impressed.

Tim is an excellent host. He knows how to dig deep and ask the right questions to make the interview more entertaining and educational at the same time!

Tim Healy is an excellent host and all of his interviews are great, but I’m biased. I particularly like the current one about being a couch potato! :)

Thanks, Tim for all you do for our business community!

And - he wears great shirts!
