Generally a big fan of the poscast and conent. The title, especially got my hopes up and my attention in these turbulent times. Unfortunately really disappointed. Nothing very new, nor specifically actionable. Personally I dont find the hot sauce metaphor very relatable.

The marshmallows test is debunked in 2018, please check it. Basically the success in life later isn't directly correlate with the delay gratification as in 1961 test but many factors such as demographic, race, etc.

Thanks for the upload, it was a very informative interview. definitely enjoyed the differentiation between self esteem and confidence, but after the episode went out and got some ice cream 🤔😂. Your podcast is one of the best out, keep up the good work 👍.

Listen to episode 343 if you're like me and you're constantly hearing that you need to be more strategic, you're too tactical and in the weeds of things!!! No one has been able to break this down to me as well as they did in that episode. Thanks Stacey Boyle!!!!!!
