Love This Podcast

I have been listen to Brave and Boss for the better part of a year and I have truly found it one of the most applicable to my business.

Kristi is informative and also I love how realistic she is. We need to be able to listen to not only the ups but also the downs in business, how to strategize and overcome.

I can’t say enough good things . Each one I listen to has valuable info. Thank you so much for taking the time to do this for all of us!
