This podcast provides a lot of insight into the struggles and successes of being an entrepreneur! It was very interesting to hear different experiences. Looking forward to more episodes!
Great info and wonderfully insightful!
As a fellow business woman/"solo-peneur" I found this discussion wonderfully insightful for anyone who is interested in starting up a small business OR who is already up-and-running and needs some advice or a morale boost. This podcast was very professional, yet very personal and conversational. I could have listened to another hour or two of Monica sharing her story.
Great approach to nuts and bolts entrepreneurship.
