So what did you guys think? The quality of the sound ok – we did this one live – and only had 1 mic so we were passing the mic back and forth.

I live off feedback! I made a survey for this year – and I’d love for you to hop on over and give me your input. It will be weighed heavily for 2016. Last year’s survey helped a lot and gave some new podcast shows like the Factory To Consumer (F2C) shows w/ Wilson Blues.
If you are down to do it – its a quick Google form survey at – no email required, just want real honest feedback.

Til next time guys – we have a lot of awesome shows pre-recorded and ready to rock! Next episode we will talk about the Hong Kong entrepreneur visa and how it has changed since the traditional investment visa – so come back Tuesday Jan 5, 2016 – crazy , already into the new year for that one.

Happy holidays again, be safe, don’t overeat, and appreciate the good people around you. Life Is short!
