The Optimists Die First with Taylor Welch
Today’s guest is one of my personal mentors, a man I’ve invested lots of my money, time and energy into over the past year. And my business - ahem, my life - has completely changed because of it. He hasn’t done a podcast interview in over two years, so, we’re lucky friends.
And I am releasing this episode on his 30th birthday - March 20! I bumped him up in the episode queue to get this out today. So if you’re hearing it this week, please wish him a happy birthday over on Instagram or Facebook. He’s quite introverted, so really ham it up for him.
Taylor Welch is digital marketing expert and co-founder of Traffic and Funnels. He lives in Nashville with his wife - and they’re expecting their first baby.
