Wow! Awesome interview! I really felt the connection on a deep level! It took me 4+ hrs to watch a 2 hr interview. Just what I needed coming to me at the right time and of course I took 2 pages of notes to help me get my life under control or at least manageable! I will get the book also. Thanks Brian, thanks David!
