I love everything about this podcast. Every guest has something worthwhile and inspiring to share, and Dorothy is so down to earth that it feels like I'm listening in on the conversation of some friends - you know, when your friends are talking and you are so encapsulated that you just soak it in and don't need to say a word. I've received so many ideas, tips and motivations from this podcast, and it keeps me looking forward and reflecting on my current practices. Thank you so much for this podcast!
Incredible resource for creative entrepreneurs
I have been so encouraged by listening to the different stories of creatives on this podcast AND I've also gotten so many of those nitty, gritty details and resources about business that I crave as someone who's just starting out.
The sound quality isn't perfect, but the information and accessibility of this podcast more than make up for it.
