||CleanEp 018 - An Update and a Mindset Breakthrough||Hello there! This week's episode is a little strange.

||CleanEp 016 - The 3 Most Important Kinds of Boundaries We Need as Entrepreneurs||On this week's show, I want to talk about something I am absolutely terrible at, and that's setting (and respecting) boundaries for and with ourselves AND our clients or customers.

||CleanEp 014 - If Walt Had Waited: How "Waiting For" Can Be Trouble for Entrepreneurs||This week's episode is important (aren't they all? "Of course!" you confirm resoundingly!).

||CleanEp 008 - Storytelling the New Old Way: What You Should Know About Podcasting for Business||Hello there! This week's episode of the show is exciting: it's my very first interview show (like ever)!

This was a recommended podcast and I have been able to listen to all of the podcasts so far. A great blend of Leadership and Marketing with a twist of Disney. A perfect blend for me. John just doesn't have a lot of useful information, but also shares some of his business challenges with his audience. That adds to the "Story" and credibility. Waiting for the next episode.
Thought provoking and well executed!
I wanted to note that I’m not, in fact, a business person prior to my review. I’m a Disney enthusiast (and content creator) who found the show due to that common interest. At first, I thought that the show’s premise wouldn’t apply to me - but I’m here to tell you that John’s creativity in connecting every day dilemmas to Disney is just brilliant. You’ll be drawn in to his excellent story telling and how his tales can benefit you in your everyday trials (and yes, the show would also be an excellent resource for business as well!). This show is a game changer, and you won’t want to miss an episode. Keep up the great work John - I’ll certainly be listening!
John knows business and Disney
Great fan of the Marketing the Magic predecessor to this podcast! Can't wait to hear more insights from John on business with the super relatable fun and business expertise of Disney woven in. John makes even the most challenging of topics relatable with a very genuine delivery having been there himself. Looking forward to the next episodes!
