We would love to have your feedback. I will not throw a 200 mg file in the audio podcast feed again (we might create another feed). 

Tom Cagley and Associates Website: We are days away from a website that brings everything together, my company, the blog, and the podcast. We will also be kicking off a newsletter in later July. We are still in the design process so I would really like your input on what makes a great newsletter. One of my favorites is Tim Ferris’s 5 Bullet Friday.   Email me at tcagley@tomcagley.com.  Feel free to send a sample.
