What People Are Saying

"I am a non traditional student in my sophomore year of college. This podcast has answered so many of my questions. This is my daily motivation podcast. I listen to it while driving, doing work around the house, and sometimes at one of my two jobs. As a single parent with no co-parent help, listening to this has kept me with my feet on the ground and not giving up on my goals."
