I was listening to our first episode #26 and it’s funny cause you can hear my daughter playing in the background.
It’s a great episode it’s been in the top most downloaded episodes since I first started.
Tell us a little about yourself.
So last time, I was father of 3 daughters expecting a fourth and now I’m a father of 4 daughters. probably the biggest change since last year. I own an operate a business in Salt Lake City where I pruned and care for people with fruit trees, mostly with a backyard orchard, a list of clients that I pruned for year after year after. I love my job! Not many people can say they love their job but I’m definitely one of them.
