The episode touched on the life, career and current path of Mike Koenigs —a 13-time best-selling author, serial entrepreneur, media professional and cancer survivor. In many ways, his story and his insights—which I heard on the podcast for the very first time—resonated with me on both a personal and professional level.

There are a number of companies that provide 800 number services for small businesses. In this article, I’ll recommend three of my favorite companies that provide 800 numbers.
