Bill is an individual who is extremely important to me. He is a mentor, a friend, and someone who I have immense amount of respect, admiration and love for. My time with Bill, his wife Lisa, their dog Paxton and the entire IFAST and Intensive 2.0 family at Intensive 2.0 in September 2018 was one of the best experiences of my life so far, and for that I am forever grateful to Bill. You can here about my entire experience at the Intensive 2.0 in episode 186 here.To Find out more about Bill, be sure to head over to his website which you can find here.You can find out
