    Great interview with Jon Gordon, but I also wanted to comment on the changes in your podcast. I have been listening to you for some time, but had the opportunity to be part of a Southwestern Consulting event at the IFA convention in New Orleans. I knew as I was enjoying it that the messages seemed very familiar. It wasn’t until two weeks later that I connected the dots that this was your organization. While I loved your previous structure, I have to admit the changes made sense. I look forward to your future messages and guests. Thanks for what you do!

    Joey this is so affirming to hear! It is always scary when making a change because we want to make sure it is in the best interest of the people we are attempting to serve – which is you! Our entire team is very excited to have my full brain power dedicated to packaging and sharing our best sales strategies with more focus. Thanks for tuning in and look forward to staying in touch!
