What Our Listeners Are Saying

A truly fulfilling listen! - If you aren’t familiar with Ric’s story, what he’s experienced and what he’s built...just listen to this podcast. Ric is a visionary business leader who employs thousands around the world, yet his humility is what’s most impressive. Give this a listen and I’m sure you’ll find it as fulfilling as I do!

Access and insight without ego - A number of podcasts have access to extraordinary people, but hosts often muddy it up by feeling the need to show how smart and/or accomplished they are. Ric, a wildly accomplished person in his own right, has no ego in these interviews.

Condensed wisdom! - Subscribed! I really liked the personal approach and the depth of the conversation. Super useful format to get take aways and insights from people with a lot of extraordinary experience.
