I miss hearing it, but when everybody's in here I'm always saying hey, I haven't heard the gong in a while!” - Troy Thompson “I feel I'm average. I really do listen to people like you that have brilliant guests that are crushing it. I'm kind of sadistic almost because I listen to almost every podcast out there. I'm just always blown away at how much better everyone is than me, so I really feel like I'm an addict. If I can take 1% of what you learn or what you teach in a year, that's gonna help me.” - Troy Thompson “I knew nothing about insurance other than going door to door saying I bet I can save you money on your insurance, and it worked.” -Troy Thompson Resources Mentioned: David Carothers LinkedIn Kyle Houck LinkedIn Florida Risk Partners The Extra 2 Minutes Troy Thompson LinkedIn Pinnacle Insurance Agency Of Minnesota
