Since The Site Shed podcast’s launch in 2016, my journey has been nothing short of amazing. The interviews I have conducted with numerous experts in their respective fields provided me with hacks, tools, and lessons that I have benefited from and have helped others tremendously. I do not see myself stopping just yet as there is just so much ahead of us. 

In this week’s episode, I talk about all the things I have learned from recording 300 podcasts. More than a celebration of reaching the 300th episode in podcasting, I celebrate the learnings gained. So I aim to give you a treasure trove of wisdom that I consider valuable in helping you further yourself and your business. 

I am excited to hear your thoughts about this episode and what else you can add to this wealth of information. Tune in now!

Great work Matt with all the podcasts and the site shed facebook community group. The amount of information that you can learn for free in this space is unbelieveable. It's great to see like minded contractors and trades trying to improve their businesses and also share ideas and help others. Highly recommend. Thanks!

I have been listening to the pod casts for a few months now, I can't get enough of all the awesome content that you guys provide. Especially when you guys deliver it from a trade perspective which helps out a lot. Keep up the good work and hopefully one day I can afford one of the trade training trips.
