Unlimited Value and Entertainment

I have listened to so many of Heather’s podcasts that at this point I feel like she’s my mentor, close friend, funny relative. Her podcast never fails to deliver a tremendous amount of value and entertainment. My business has improved in so many ways from actioning her tips, the topics are always relevant, the guests are consistently top notch, and Heather is just such a genuine and pleasant person to listen to. Please don’t ever stop what you do, and I hope to meet you one day!

Hi I really love your content but I can’t stand how fast your audio is, it’s almost the worst of all podcasts I listen to, please slow it down, I don’t care how long the episodes are you had me at Vacation rentals, lol
