Elevator Radio Show – Audio/Video #406 - Week 09/02/15


It's good to be back after a few weeks, I missed you guys and gals. I also appreciate all the emails I received of support from so many of you letting me know much you enjoy the show each week and that you've missed it. I heard from not only those of you in the US but in the UK, Germany, Saudi Arabia and Canada. Now that to me is pretty cool to know that the show reaches such a large audience worldwide. I'll talk a little more about what I've been up to which I hope will help set many of your minds at ease. We've got a $100 Visa Gift Card we're giving away today and have a ton of content to get through so grab a cup of joe or beverage of your choice and enjoy.

Looks as that will be my vacation for the summer.  Stay cool, drink lots of liquids and make sure you take time for vacation before summer runs out!  The kiddies will be headed back to school before you know it!
