K1or2 ,

Episode 166 - and now I think we all love you just a little bit more

Hey Jen - thanks for your honesty in sharing mistakes and more importantly your lessons - I appreciated how owning them also gave you agency to take action. (Ps don’t hang on to the messages if you only pull them out to whack yourself with). Looking forward to sharing 2022 with you K

McMini's ,

If you’re a business owner, you need this podcast in your life

Jen, I cannot thank you enough for taking a leap of faith and starting this podcast.

I’ve recently found you and am listening from the very beginning, it has been so incredibly valuable for me having recently launched my business. You are so generous in the content you provide, with clear actions, tips and tricks and how social media and marketing strategies can be adopted in any industry.

Thank you so so much, I can’t recommend you highly enough and am telling all my small business peeps about you!
