TorGirlRunner ,

Strong inspiring women

Love listening to Liz & Julie’s podcasts on my runs. Every interview with their guests has left me feeling educated, comforted, inspired, and motivated to keep moving forward on my own path in life. I regularly have to come home and listen to them again just to write down some of the thought provoking quotes. Can’t wait for the next one.

shes-crafty ,

This is the podcast you need

Listening to Julie and Liz interview each other, and then their stellar lineup of guests, you feel like these are ladies you want to be friends with. They are professional yet warm. Educated and well spoken yet approachable and down to earth. Every woman who is in “that stage” of her life needs to listen to this. Each of us has an afterglow inside us. And these two boss babes will help you find it

ThisGirl~Is~Rising ,

Smart AND Sassy

Julie and Liz are the real deal. Smart conversations with an edge. Two great women who ask the important questions— of their guests, yes, but maybe even more importantly, of themselves.
