Episode #126: Ask Me Anything

Jeff answers listener questions

Listeners like you asked for tips on how I manage to read a book a week, to retaining what I read, and even what I consider my greatest success and (failure) as an entrepreneur these last few months.

I had a lot of fun answering them. So much so that I’ll likely do it again later in the year. Thank you to Marcus, Keith, John, Sheryl, Doug and Travis for their questions.

    Chuckling to myself regarding the speed which people listen to podcast. We New Zealanders must speak fast as I can make perfect sense of the content at 2x speed.

    • I think more people than I realize listen at faster speeds. I’ve always been something of an audio purest I guess. I either never think to do it, or I talk myself out of it. 🙂
