Off to a great start
I found Sean prior to his new podcast and have been enjoying his very insightful and thought provoking newsletters. This podcast is clearly going to be a nice way for Sean to expand on those ideas. Looking forward to following along!
I’m biased, but still very good
In complete disclosure, I was the first interview on the show, so I am slightly skewed here, BUT being a podcaster myself, I can say without a doubt that Sean has come into this arena swinging for the fences. His approach to the conversation, and the quality of the storytelling makes Taking the Leap one of my favorite new shows.
Definitely worth following
This was a super podcast. The content was well thought out, clearly presented & inspirational. I'll be tuning in for future episodes - keep them coming!
