What I gained
I listen to you guys when I’m at the gym. Because of George’s wisdom I finally made the leap to apply for a business license and make the move to step into where I need to be. JZ has taught me not to measure my physical appearance as progress but instead how my body feels. I’ve been in the trap of the fools who want that fit body instead of feeling fit.
Great work as always and if I may suggest a topic, I would love to hear your opinions on the power of saying “no.”
Love you guys.
Great episode and valuable info!
Thanks for your genuine approach to sharing your message. You make a great team.
