This was one of those interviews that was a blast from the past and a leap into the future at the same time. See, Brian was on episode fifteen of the podcast—that’s 374 episodes ago! So clearly, it was high time to have him back on the show.

Brian brings his years of insight and hard work to this interview so you can get a better idea of what it takes to get your own project off the ground. Doesn’t matter if you’re an entrepreneur, business-curious, or simply wanting to be a better leader in whatever you’re doing—there’s some excellent, straightforward advice here.
