His guy is just an dumb.

Low IQ Jason

Jhwahaha ,

Listen to remember

I have been remarkably successful in my life endeavors. I listen to this podcast for Jason alone.

He seems so disconnected. I listen to remind myself to remain humble, and not sound like Jason when speaking with employees or partners.

Jason also has made REALLY bigoted comments about people in other countries that I and others found very distasteful.
