Enough to get anyone excited!!
Love this podcast! The perfect marriage of real talk, wit, and knowledge nuggets that any entrepreneur can relate to and benefit from. Kudos to hosts Meagan and Dave. Great job.
Easy to relate to these two entrepreneurs!
This is a great show for entrepreneurs, self-starters, and anybody who wants to make positive change in their lives at work or at home. I love the short-episodes-throughout-the-week format - makes it easy to digest in small bites - and the Thursday interviews are great!
LifeWork is fantastic!
I truly enjoyed David’s introduction as I’ve always found Mr. Krock to be an interesting man. His story is something I can truly relate to personally while learning something at the same time. Dave is great for this show not just for his wisdom but his fantastic ability to break things down and make them accessible to others. Through this podcast, he is a wonderful teacher. His down-to-earth humor and ever-curious nature brings a lot to his voice on the show and I definitely look forward to listening to LifeWork in future episodes to come.
