Annmarie's Breaking Ground Podcast Show

Before I apologize for not launching an episode in over a year, I want to thank the operator who called me out on this. I was at a hospital the other day, an operator opened up his podcast app and showed me my cover photo and asked, “is that you?” I smiled and said "yes", he then said, “You haven’t launched one in a real long time”. That’s when I knew he was a true subscriber. Thank you for for calling me out, it has inspired me to get me back on it. When I initially launched the first episode I didn’t know if the industry was ready for it. Heck some of the guys were still using flip phones but I was told, “build it and they will come”. I’m glad I did because they are listening. If you know of any products or services that save energy, will impact owners, and help operations please let me know, I’d love to learn about it and have you as a future guest. https://www.ebs.nyc/contact/ (background music provided by Geir Isene)
