Insightful. Easily relatable and memorable.
At first I laughed because the title sounded so....inappropriate. But the concept of treating others how they NEED to be treated is an ageless concept. Peter makes this concept memorable and relatable to daily life. I actually find myself using his lingo sometimes! I look forward to hearing the upcoming interviews with the thought leaders.
It was easy to listen to. The first 3 episodes are diretly related to marketing and different methods that can be used. I am looking forward to the upcoming Michael Gerber segments and the individual interviews. Good job.
Peter brings a wealth of experience as a savvy marketer and entrepreuer into these podcasts. You will not be disappointed with his approach and content.
