Refreshing, calm, practical and real

What a delight and an inspiration Vanessa’s podcast is. It has come to me right when I need it. Especially some of the poignant and valuable lessons embedded in Vanessa’s episodes. I’m bingeing your podcasts right now Vanessa and I love it. I’m going to tell my boyfriend Tim Reid, of the Small Business Big Marketing podcast all about you. Now back to listening. Thank you so so so much. Progress over perfection. It’s the best advice. Big hugs. Sarah C (exhausted corporate and closet hippy)
