Episode art: This Is Not the End
This Is Not the End

It’s been a great run, and we couldn’t have done it without you, our listeners.

Thank you so much for listening to one episode, 20, or all 215! If you shared an episode with a friend, you get a high five. Aw, fine, make it a hug.

For real, without folks listening to the show, we wouldn’t have made it to 215 episodes. We wouldn’t have been able to get the fantastic guests we’ve had over the last few years. And last, but definitely not least, we wouldn’t have been able to get to know so many of you.

So for the last time (for now), thank you for listening, we won’t be back next Tuesday at 6AM Eastern. Have a great year, stay safe, and of course as always… Keep rockin!

What you’ll learn:

  • What we all enjoyed most about the podcast
  • Lessons learned from the show
  • Coming at our goals with different perspectives
  • How we can all learn from each other
  • Why you absolutely need to back up your files
  • Removing the gatekeepers from the scene
  • Embracing failure
