    This was a great topic, thank you for breaking boundaries and asking what if?! Where do we find the Code for the recert credits? I listened on Apple and looked at the end of the video. Thanks!

      I’m glad you enjoyed it, Rachael! The credit code is shared during the commercial near the middle of the episode.

    A very provocative subject – and one that deserves consideration. Hopefully, more people will be open to continuing the conversation as a result of this Episode. Thank you Mike!

    • Mike Coffey

      Thanks, Karen. When the topic first came up, I was skeptical. But after I looked into it, I was impressed by the number of people (including a number of successful entrepreneurs) who claim that ketamine and other psychedelics helped improve their mental wellness significantly. If it is getting traction, I thought I should make sure my audience had some familiarity with it.

    Ahhh thank you so much Mike, I just listened to “Don’t Get Sued”, I am loving your podcasts, such helpful information. I can’t tell you the number of times I have said, “there’s 3 sides to every story: his, hers and the truth!”
