Informative and Uplifting
I really enjoyed the podcast I listened to so far, and I will listen to the prior postings shortly. The information provided is relevant, timely and motivational. Knowing what others are going through and what they have overcome can help to propel ones goals while avoiding certain pitfalls.
Keep up the good work!! I will be listening weekly.
