Pick my brain? Yeah – nah – I don’t let people pick my brain; it’s way too valuable for that. And, Incredible One, neither should you. In this episode, I am issuing a reminder for those of you who have been asked by anyone if they could buy you a burger to learn your million-dollar secrets. The burger stops here.
