Lovely platform for honest startup stories

Thank you so much for inviting me on your Podcast to share my story and experience of launching my business My Icon Story!
I met Frankie at a speaker event and she was so complimentary and a real supporter. I’ve loved seeing Found & Flourish ‘flourish’ and feel honoured to have been on the show! Keep up the great work ladies :)

Felt like I wanted to get involved in the conversation

I've just started listening to this podcast and I absolutely love it! Lara & Frankie are so natural and easy to listen to - I really felt like I wanted to jump in and get involved in the conversation on multiple occasions. Really interesting and topical subjects, and very relevant to me at the moment. Loving it ladies, well done!
