So inspiring and reassuring
I cannot tell you how much this podcast has helped build my confidence around my small business that I am building. Both are realistic too none of that overwhelming scary bolshiness that you get from some entrepreneurial podcasts - ideal for the sensitive creative! 🖤🖤🖤
Found this podcast after buying Sarah’s book which has changed my photography style completely and delivered massive results! Keep going ladies I love this!!! Thank you
Encouraging & Super Informative
Sarah and Ken have a lovely rapport and approach all letters with compassion, understanding and honesty. As an Artist who works on her own it’s helpful and encouraging to hear their stories and learn from others. Lovely. Keep doing what you’re doing girls x
Ambitious, encouraging, open but realistic
Jen and Sarah have such good business advice, from a very realist view point. I feel that many business/ creative commerce podcasts do not talk about the knitty gritty of a business, profit and reality of seeing return on investment.
This is the first of their podcasts I’ve listened to - it is good for beginner to intermediate.
They are super realistic with money, time and I will be continuing to listen to their other podcasts.
This is a really informative, human and pragmatic podcast and def cuts through the chaff.
