Best Podcast on the Net

Truly, truly love these two gals! Not only do they make me laugh out loud, they inspire me, they have thought provoking conversations & they teach great things to those who are aspiring or current bosses!

They’ve introduced me to books, methods and “woo woo” techniques that have LITERALLY changed my life, my business and even my family!

Their guests are always on point and their questioning is second to none, they definitely know how to keep the conversation flowing, on track & on point!

Not only do they have a great podcast but they have a beautifully written and designed book that is a must read!

Thanks Emily & Kathleen! YOU ROCK!!

Only halfway through one episode and I’m hooked

I listened to one episode on a whim because I was looking for more marketing podcast that spoke my language. Only halfway through the Instagram and blogging episode and I hit subscribed. Loving it so far and can’t wait to hear more episodes.

So much enthusiasm!

I love this show! It’s so natural and Emily and Kathleen have so much enthusiasm for what they do-it’s infectious. I’ve listened to other shows but this one gives me the confidence and feeds my drive to just go for it, and ‘be boss’!
