Customer Reviews

Krista Kankula ,

This podcast feels like one big happy and hopeful sigh 💜

I so appreciate Jadah’s calm, reassuring and inspiring message of leading with love. It’s so easy to get caught up in numbers, comparison and feeling not enough. After tuning into her podcast I always feel more connected to myself and rooted back in trusting my gifts, my creativity and of course love. I love learning about the guests she has on, especially because they’re often women I’m not already familiar with. Thank you Jadah!!!

Creating with love

Found Jadah through the Being Boss podcast, and now I’m all in. I love her fresh perspective. Her words feel true in my spirit and you can hear the love in her voice. I started a new project around the time I found Lead with Love, and it is totally shaping my approach (for the better). Thank you for sharing your wisdom with us, Jadah! Love from Alberta, Canada.

I stumbled on Jadah’s podcast through the being boss podcast. Her voice is refreshing and inspirational. I’m wondering how I didn’t find her sooner! I was getting so tired of the whole hustling for Instagram followers thing. I am listening to Jadah’s podcast and this is how I want to do business. Thank you so much for creating this!! ❤️
