A conversation you didn’t know you needed

Listening to Dan’s podcast it’s like hearing someone tell you exactly what you needed to hear right when you needed to hear it. Sometimes you don’t even know that you needed to have the conversation, but after you listen to him you realize it is exactly what your heart needed to move in a new direction. His upbeat voice and positive message sticks with you throughout the day.
