Mike Schmitz joins Josh and Joe this round to discuss the new goals they’ve chosen for season two. Which is tricky since Josh started the show with only two goals.

As you can tell by my co-hosting of three different shows, I have embraced my love for podcasting. But, apparently, running three shows of my own isn’t enough. I started doing some interviews on other shows and the first of these to release is my chat with Jay Miller over on the Productivity in Tech podcast.
