Great show with great hosts

Craig and Asante have created a platform that allows others to be part of the journey and have a heart to showcase the stories and heart of others. I highly recommend the podcast to be part of your rotation of podcasts that you listen to.

We had the pleasure of having them on as guests on our podcast, and the vision they have for The Next Season is phenomenal as they are driven to help others along the journey of making a pivot or transition in life.

If you haven't given a review or feedback on how their podcast has impacted you, I highly suggest providing that so they can build a stronger community.

Let's go!
