We really had a great conversation with the founders of Heartfelt Productions, John & Brandon Laubhan!


I met John at Michael Zuber's 50k subscriber celebration for his One Rental At A Time event in Vegas last month. I found out he played professional baseball in what I consider to be the Golden Era of the sport (the '70s and '80s–mostly because I was a HUGE baseball fan back then).

We talked about some of his teammates. He got to play with Chili Davis, a San Francisco Giants great of that timeframe.

Fast forward a bit, where Beau Eckstein and I got on a podcast in front of Heartfelt Productions, where John was leading the management of the pod. We talked mostly about AI.

Afterwards, the three of us talked more about AI, business, relationships, and a whole host of other topics.

That's when I asked John to be on Two Guys Talkin'.

What you read, see, and hear below is our interview, uncut and unedited, except for a slight “leveling” of the audio (I hope it turns out well, as I'm writing this as the monkeys spin the editing app–thanks Riverside!).
