    Absolute joy to be on the show and hopefully add value to the community. Looking forward to connecting with others and greatly appreciate any feedback or suggestions on how to improve my rationale around intentional improvement, improve my presence on a podcast or how to best initiate KATA. -Brandon Bartel
