Reflect, Revise, Remix your life!

About

Welcome to the second mix podcast where we reflect, revise, and remix our lives. I love to talk about things that matter with people who care, and I'm here today with a dose of self-development to help make you better, stronger, and wiser.  My name is Matt Bennett and I'm bringing you some old-school personal development from the original masters of motivation as well as interviews with entrepreneurs, authors, coaches, and consultants - anyone who has a mission of making things better.
