122 - The Gauntlet Throwing Hiatus - Is This the End? (Feat. Ralph & Carol Lynn Rivera)

Is This the End of Make it Snappy?

I’m excited to close “Season 1” of The Make it Snappy Productivity Show here with Episode 122 and prepare for what’s in store for the future and the big reveal for what to expect (if?) and when we return! Is this the end of Make it Snappy?

I’ve been podcasting for over 18 months now. This episode unpacks my lessons learned from the tremendous experience. We’re taking 90 days off to regroup and comeback stronger than ever, so what will this look like for The Make it Snappy Productivity Show? You’ll find out if you listen all the way to the end....

The other thing you’ll get from this episode is my response to a challenging gauntlet that Ralph & Carol Lynn threw my way on their show, Carbon Based Business Units, episode 183 about something “way outside the norm” to help businesses grow to $2-5-million in revenue and beyond. 


Further, the dynamic duo did a full-blown critique of my email autoresponder in episode 186 of Carbon Based Business Units (which I took in stride) and I thought was so valuable that I’d give you my biggest takeaways as well. 

Much love and a HUGE shout-out to my main man Niel Guilarte of The Wildstyle Media Group for producing this value-packed listening experience!
