ShaniceJM ,

Great information on starting a web design business

I just love all of the topics covered in this podcast. Whether you’re a beginner in your web design business or have been in business for years, you’ll learn something that will help your business grow!

Simplicity to complexity

Josh does a great job of explaining what most others don’t. Other podcast I listen to from people in the web design space talk over the heads of people starting out. Josh doesn’t. He is all about lifting others up to win. His podcast is great to listen to, has amazing sound quality, and the information is always what’s promised in the title and description of the episode. This is my new favorite podcast in the web design business space.

Awesome show

Josh is an excellent host! I had the pleasure of coming on to the show as a guest, and I must say I was blown away by the quality of the podcast.
From pre-recording steps, to the episode itself, he asked me very insightful questions that enabled me to share interesting info on the show.
I highly recommend the podcast to any entrepreneur in the digital world.
