        Do solos really still work? Haven’t even listened yet, just surprised to see you cover this topic… i thought they were dead.

          Hey Tim,

          Nope, not dead by a LONG shot. Check out the podcast, you’ll see Daegan has built a 7 figure business on top of nothing more than solo advertising. Sounds pretty “alive” to me! Thanks for stopping by!

        Hi- Great podcast series- these are all so incredibly helpful. Quick question- how do you recommend finding the right provider to work with? How do you know who has a list that you can use?
