Great support for bookkeeping and financial small businesses

I listened to Michael Palmer’s podcast when I was invited to be a guest talking about Navigating Challenging Dialogue® and Mastering Feedback®.

At first I wondered how his podcast, geared toward bookkeepers, could be relevant and meaningful for me - a small business owner and consultant. However, as I listened to different episodes, I gained a great deal of insight that regardless of the work of the business, really matters.

Thank you for being a quality podcaster sharing great content!
