    Andrew, you're the man! Nobody else provides this content to the extent you do. Thank you!


    I find these weekly podcasts to be super inspirational, they seem to always motivate me to look at my purpose. Matt not only brings in his personal life experiences but he delivers them in such a way that they are relatable.
