I’ve had the privilege of witnessing the growth of his business during this time and knew that having him back on the show to share his recent experience would be a great source of encouragement and inspiration to many. I’m honored to feature another great conversation with Leslie in this week’s episode.

Consistent Weekly Episodes of Podcast Answer Man Moving Forward – 00:03:03
I’ve given a great deal of thought about the consistency of this podcast lately. We’re currently in our 48th week of 2015 and this episode is the 40th episode that I’ve produced so far this year.

However, I know, first hand, just how important consistency is to maintain a loyal community of folks who will make you a part of their weekly listening routines. From this point forward, I will release an episode every week, publishing the episode to the feed on Friday mornings at 5am Eastern Time.
