My favourite podcast

Luann, I have been listening to your podcasts for quite some time now and I can’t get over how incredibly informative each and every episode is. Your dedication to put together two podcasts a week is just unreal and each and every one is full of wisdom and inspiration! I am a #babydesigner and every time I think I’m failing, I remember some piece of wisdom you shared and I decide to keep going. The interviews are so conversational as well, I feel like I am right in the room with you. You have really made a difference in this girl’s life so thank you so much!

The Most Value You’ll Ever Get As a Designer

A Well-Designed Business is the best education you can get on how to run your design business successfully! LuAnn (without knowing it) has transformed how I do business, how I think of myself as a CEO/business owner and how I approach my finances and processes. Although I’ve been in business for 14 years, I’ve discovered I am a “Baby Designer” in many ways, but I can see that everything I’ve learned from LuAnn and her guests over the last year and a bit is changing that quickly! Love the podcast! LuAnn— you are the angel on my shoulder❤️
