  1. Thanks, guys, for the great podcast. I especially enjoyed the bit about mentors, and why the value in having a mentor isn’t so that he’ll tell you exactly what to do. The value is that he can give you perspective, reframing and recalibrating your expectations based on having already travelled the same road.

  2. Great podcast, but Kyle PLEASE stop making every other comment into a plug (subtle or not) for your coaching service.

    1. Thanks Jay, glad you enjoyed it. Been a few weeks since we recorded but I only remember mentioning my coaching once or twice as an aside or story that related to something else we were talking about.
