Tim Miles and Ryan Patrick use their combined 40+ years experience working with family businesses to share stories, offer advice, and cut through the buzzword-saturated clutter of marketing and management advice. Part Dave Barry and Part Dave Ramsey, these two guys look at the world—and the world of business—a little bit differently (and a little bit irreverently), and they've helped hundreds of businesses and thousands of people communicate more powerfully as a result.

The Best of All the 18 Minute Podcasts on Marketing, Management, and Meatloaf.
I’m putting this review since Ryan and Tim FINALLY mentioned me. Yes, yes, I am the Rylie mentioned in the podcast. But even though I’m probably going to be a teacher, I think their words on managing and marketing are good. Yet, the meatloaf is, probably, the best. My dad and Tim make me laugh, almost, every episode. 10/10, would recommend.
P.S. The meatloaf (that my dad mentioned in episode one) was actually really bad, since my mom did something wrong...
Totally worth a listen
My favorite podcast! Lots of tangible tidbits useful for anyone in business. Let’s face it everyone can do better in the marketing/advertising realm. Tim and Ryan stand shoulder to shoulder with you as they current, transparent and funny as well!👍🏻
