  1. Thank you so much for this podcast Brett. This is exactly what I need, exactly when I need it. I am 30 years old, and have just recently grown enough to realize that the way I am living my life is leaving me stuck, and mentally exhausted. I am just now realizing what I want out of life, and don’t have any of the skills necessary to accomplish them. This podcast hit the spot.

    Thanks again for all you do!!
