FoxHillStudios ,

Great Podcast. Very informative.

I really enjoy this podcast because it gives me awesome tips for my everyday life. I’ve listened to all the podcasts in one day (5 minutes or less). I can’t say enough about Tom he’s been an awesome friend over the years. I met him when I took a course he was teaching many moons ago.

Basic

Platitudes from someone who is overly impressed with themselves. I found little of use here. Not recommended

Good to know

As always Tom gives us the tools needed to be more successful. Clear and concise. Worth the five minutes !
