Matt, thank you for all your hard work and dedication in creating these wonderful episodes!
I was listening to E 42 about your takeaways and I cannot agree with you more in attending industry events and conferences. I have made many strong connections from attending these events, that help me to grow my businesses. Great to finally meet you at VRMA in New Orleans!
