Episode 146: Dare To Bare [7 Quirks]

It’s rock and roll at The Dingle tonight as Vicky and Joe are drinking peppermint tea. The Dingle features heavily at the start of this episode, but the new staircase is totally relevant to your business. As is storytelling. Yep: we’re on the storytelling train AGAIN and you’d better buckle up and listen in if you want to build the kinds of connections that create raving fans who pay you lots of money for what you do. Tune in to hear Joe’s shock at discovering he’s the sidekick in this podcast – and find out why they’re talking about sidekicks at all. This quirk is easy to jump on – so pour us into your ears and get cracking.
