Program note: The audio quality isn’t exactly up to spec as the learning curve for these special episodes was in play. Kim was in her car just finishing a seminar, Greg was also just getting out of a seminar and attempted to connect with WIFI. We did have our connection challenges with this brand new social platform. Please work through some of the noise and clutter to get some great points of wisdom from Doug, Greg and Kim. Well worth the listen. Thanks, Carm
