A Bad Bad Bad Day – Jason Monteiro – EP 84

Jason Monteiro is a perfect example of why I do this podcast. He reached out to about coming on the podcast, which happens all the time and people have different reasons why they want to come on.

But the thing that made Jason's reason different, I didn't learn about until we got into the interview. And I have to admit, I was not expecting to find this out from him.

[13:01] Dig Deeper – This is the part of the podcast were I dig into the guest's social media and I craft questions around 3-5 of those posts.

Jason opens up and shares some of his childhood and what some of his teachers, may have though of him.
