Ep. 013 – Bakers Dozen with Adam Yee, Product Developer from Isagenix

So this interview was from a deal I made with Taryn Yee. I interview her… and then she would interview me. Ideally, I should have made this episode number 5, right? Why should I wait for episode 13?

Well, my birthday is January 13th, a baker’s dozen has 13 of something, 13 is an unlucky number? Whichever explanation your prefer, I’ve decided to use my interview for episode 13.

Here’s my point of view from my perspective. Taryn Yee asks some pretty funny questions in this one.
