Amber Badger ,

LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE x 100000 (I love it a lot, okay?)

Starting the Conversation with Alice Benham offers a totally fresh, accessible and relatable approach to the business conversations many of us shy away from.

Alice is an epic host, connecting with each and every guest in a way that always moves the conversation in very inspiring ways. As someone who is only 7 months into her business, this podcast has provided me with no end of ideas and even just the reassuring "you're doing alright!" pat on the back I sometimes crave.

I always look forward to new episodes and am excited to see where the podcast goes in 2020!
