Why it was selected for “CBNation Architects”: Jake is a wealth of knowledge and it's always great to have another podcaster in the podcast community on the show. He talked about the entrepreneurial journey and the things that we learn along the journey. I also loved hearing the questions or prompts he uses to journal as well which is a space that's created to reflect on the journey.

Yeah, one of my favorites, my first business advisor, Alex McClafferty. He's one of the co-founders of WP Curve, which they did a phenomenal thing and then went off and sold the GoDaddy and started working with him. And that was like a key turning point in my life and business. And one of the things that he said to me that has always stuck with me is, your business is a reflection of yourself.
