Thank you C & T❤️✈️🌎

A MUST Podcast!
When Covid hit and The Tin Lounge and others stepped in I had no idea what it all "really" would mean for me and my business. What I know now is - the main ingredient i= confidence.
The realness of your collab and your convo each week just meets me at my desk and validates me and keeps me moving. It has led to me being able to let some bookings go, to jump to spend money on an assistant, to consider an IC - all of it.
I feel now that Independence + A Dose of Assistance and Support = Sustainable Success!
THANK YOU for taking the time!

Oasis Awaits Travel Co. ,

Always wanting more…..

I look forward to new episodes being released each week. Informative & straightforward updates on the industry while keeping it fun! I’m always wanting the episode to keep going and I look forward to immediately listening to any new episodes.

Love This Podcast!!!

This review is long overdue. I have been listening to this show for months and love it. I am a home based advisor and work alone. I have no associates or employees which can be isolating. So, I really appreciate the connection I feel from this podcast. Thank you both so much for all of the news, updates and sharing of your general thoughts and struggles. I relate to so much of what you share and appreciate it so much!! This is really my favorite industry podcast. Your generosity is greatly appreciated. I hope to be able to thank you both in person some day. (I am a TPI agent too.) Best wishes to you both.
