I’m still watering!

This podcast is the icing on the cake to the entire concept of watering the bamboo. Greg Bell took us to school on how to become a bamboo farmer, and now, in this podcast, we get to hear from people who have actually been watering the bamboo for years and are telling their story. At the time of writing this review, I have listened to all 5 episodes, and they are outstanding! My favorite has to be Tim Morgan, who is all about learning, growth, and a positive mindset. Can’t wait for more!

Greg Changes Lives!

I’ve attended Greg’s in person seminars, read his books and followed his content for years. He is really a genuine, caring person. He gives people and teams practical tools to see the good in any situation. He reframes bad or negative situations and gives people ideas to move forward. Very happy to have him available on a podcast now!
