Key Quotes:

  • “Back when we started, we were the only show that the podcast wasn’t a funnel to get you into some sort of coaching or training or something of that nature. The podcast is the product. So, therefore, we can leave it all out on the field, per se.” – Bradley Flowers
  • “I always wanted the opportunity to start something where we could help other agents get better every single week.” – Scott Howell
  •  “If you want to be an elite content creator, you’ve got to step your game up.” – Bradley Flowers
