Podcast

It’s about the journey, not the destination. Payback Time is a podcast that dives into the real story behind the person. How did they build their business? What challenges did they overcome? What mistakes did they make? And how did they achieve their goals? The overall objective is to provide you with a roadmap that leads to success.  This podcast will streamline your learning curve.
