  • Awesomefest of Business Podcasts
    September 23, 2017 by Hero Von Awesome from United States

    I absolutely love this Podcast! I subscribed and am looking forward to future episodes! I really like how Zach asks good questions and then just let's the person talk. Often the host will interject a lot and it takes away from what the guest is actually saying. I also really like the podcast length. Anything over 30 minutes and I rarely will listen to it. This was perfect and usually I'm disappointed that it is over. I want more!! Outstanding choice of guests to feature and the to build up to who they are so is well done. This enables the listener to know to know the value of what this person is saying and that they are a real expert. Love it and highly recommend listening, especially if you are an entrepreneur or at all related to sales

  • Love these podcasts!
    September 21, 2017 by misslaurenhayden from United States

    I’m a student dietitian and working student. And that doesn’t even count life outside of school and work. So it can be overwhelming at times to say the least! I love how Zach’s podcasts focus on the positive, don’t procrastinate, to not ever give up and most of all, keep pushing foward!

    September 21, 2017 by SIDSTL from United States

    Just like the title says: FINALLY! Someone was bold enough to say that social media is not for everyone. I work as the Director of Athletic Communications at a university in the St. Louis area where social media is our biggest communicator. Zach had the guts to come out and say the exact thing that everyone else in my position has been saying for years! His truthfulness along with his experience growing up in the “Birth of Social Media” makes his podcasts a must listen to anyone who wants to further their career in the business industry!

  • The ultimate sales "how to" guide
    September 21, 2017 by Director_Bob from United States

    This podcast is so valuable that I hope my competition doesn't find out about it! Each episode features a guest who has mastered the art of getting clients - business leaders with hugely successful businesses - and basically they tell you how to do what they did. It's like buying a dozen sales strategy books and finding out someone has gone through them and highlighted just the important stuff for you. The hosts asks the questions I would ask if I had the opportunity to pick the brain of these business leaders. This podcast makes me feel like I have a team of mentors helping to make my business successful. I look forward to each new episode. Bravo!
