Keep moving; nothing to see here; move along please...
Amazingly entertaining. This is exactly what I hoped to hear coming from Dan and Ian from The Lifestyle Business Podcast, Tropical MBA dot com and the Dynamite Circle. I was always a little bummed out listening to The LBP when they would say they had just spent hours bs-ing but it wasn't what us listeners wanted to hear. Its exactly what I want to hear! I've always gotten a lot of value listening to people I look up to when they're relaxed and just shooting the breeze and this podcast is excellent for getting that kind of insight and value.
My only complaint starts at episode three. Start bleeping out all the big details in that podcast and make it an ad for the DC! It's insane the brain juice that flows from those guys. The world does not need all this info. I need it, my friends need it, and I don't want anyone else to have it. So... Like I said. Nothing to see here. Please move along...
Get Inside The Minds Of Baller Biznass Builders!
I'm seriously excited that Dan & Ian & David are doing this podcast. You get to hear the same conversations that I've been privileged to hear behind the scenes during mastermind calls. This is hardcore business talk -- no fluff, no holding back.
