It was my great pleasure to participate in this show and it was one of the best UBI shows I have ever heard of.

I’m glad to see that people now can watch the recording of it.

Was at this live Event with Scott Stantens on the Twitter Spaces…this was a Hot Session full of interesting ideas. Stantens corrected a lot of misunderstood ideas that have to do with UBI. He also brought Clarity through his Fresh Perspective on how things really impact the bottomline.
