Today I’m talking to my special guest Chris Harder, and this episode is different in that it’s going to air on both of our podcasts. You’ll notice it’s a real back and forth conversation, or “cage match,” as I call it! We talk everything money, business, losing it all (and how to get it back even faster), generosity and so much more. Chris is a true rockstar and I think you’re really going to enjoy all the places this conversation goes today!
