danielledaisypatch ,

pure joy with practical steps too!

I've just recently discovered this podcast and Nicole's work and just love how honest these conversations are. I listened to both Denise Duffield Thomas episodes and love how both women get real about life, and how they bring so much joy to the tough stuff. Honest shares about business, life, and happiness. Made me feel more human & amplified my business confidence just tuning in. :)

Little House of Wild_Gem ,

The perfect addition to my morning coffee 💫

I absolutely love this podcast, it’s honest, raw and full to the brim with inspiration. Thanks Nic.
