Episode 105 Features Mick Carbo, Founder & Head Coach of Carbo Coaching. Mick has a very unique story from starting to grow his first business when he was just out of high school, getting married and having kids in his late teens, and selling marijuana in his mid-20s and ultimately getting arrested. I really enjoyed this vulnerable conversation with Mick and I hope you do too.

Had a great interview with Dating Coach Cora Boyd on the latest installment of the Just Get Started Podcast. I got in touch with Cora through the Next Gen Community and it was neat to talk with someone running something different than a tech or product company to change things up on the Podcast. I think you all will get a lot out of this episode and really enjoy the dialogue!
