This episode rocked. When I heard you said you cried, I wanted to know who this guy was because I was going to go punch him for you. But I had a feeling he was a competitor and just wanted attention. And the comment targeted at your kid shocked me. I hate bullies! I love your podcast. I am 42 having to reinvent myself again for the 4th time. Going towards an online business and your podcast is helping me navigate the madness. Thank you sooooooo much for leading the tribe and taking those punches for us. We appreciate you 💖

This used to be my favorite podcast, every episode brought unique perspectives, ideas, and easy to follow advice. Now it literally just talks about whatever Pat has going on for himself. Pains me to do it, but I'm hitting the unsubscribe. Naming a conference after yourself was irredeemable.
