William Green - The Man Behind The Books

Update: 2022-06-23


William Green, best-selling author and podcast host extraordinaire, comes back to The Business Brew to have a very real conversation about life.  William's first appearance was part of the launch of Richer, Wiser, Happier, which you can find at  This conversation is more focused on William's career and lessons he has learned.

This was a conversation that really put a smile on Bill's face and it is one The Business Brew is very proud to feature.  Hopefully this conversation shows a unique side to William Green; the side Bill got to see when they first met.

We hope you enjoy the conversation as much as Bill enjoyed recording it.
