BTW, really itching to dive into the book.. Pre-ordered and waiting with great anticipation 😉




As with most of the interviews I’ve watched so far on London Real, absolutely inspirational. So many gems in there.
Great guest and conversation.. Had me smiling and uplifted throughout. Thanks Brian, for opening up the doors to access this material.


Glad you enjoyed the episode! Don’t forget to check out the first time Ross was on the show:
