E345: Three Years Later: Under the Hood Updates with Brad Bernhart

Welcome to the EcomCrew Podcast, and we have a special episode for you today!

Brad Bernhart, our first Under the Hood guest, is back to give us updates on how his business is doing. We get to revisit my advice to him, whether or not he was able to implement them, and how it turned out.

We started this segment in January 2018, hoping to help out our fellow entrepreneurs improve their businesses while also getting great content for the podcast. Almost three years later, we’re still doing it, and we want to know how my advice actually influenced their growth.
