I connected with Dennis on LinkedIn first after reading some of his posts about Creating a Serious Shift and The Experience Economy. He delivered some great insight on both and I think it is on point for financial advisors, wholesalers, and really everyone who wants to get more out of life and business.
The Episode was fun to record and we could have went on for hours with Dennis moving effortlessly from one Awesome point to the next, delivering TONS of value and takeaways that I hope you will enjoy and find as useful as I have.
