Podcast Ep.306 ,

INSPIRATION Alert!

I loved your latest guest episode with Sarah Hawley, "Conscious Leadership and the Future of Work " was really insightful! I thought you asked some great questions that really gave us a good look into Sarah's journey with Growmotely. The aha moments were the best and I loved the energy you brought to the episode since it was my first time tuning in! I loved hearing how Sarah is trailblazing the space and how she has been authentic and unapologetically herself with her business journey as she is revolutionizing the world of work. Bravo work, Tracy! I can’t wait to tune in for more episodes. This was my first time tuning in and I loved hearing how to scale and grow a brand that works for you in your specific industry.

Awesome, practical advice!

Even though I’m not a jewelry designer, Tracy gives so much practical info on the podcast that can be applied to any business. Not only does the podcast include tangible strategies, it also helps with the mental shifts needed for anyone trying to run a successful business!

AMAZING INFORMATION

Update - 4/20/22: Definitely a MUST listen to for product businesses. I make handmade jewelry, and also purchase her book, and EVERYTHING she shares on this podcast, in her book and in her courses is the TRUTH! This is my first time listening to this podcast and there is SO much information packed into just one episode. Highly recommend just based on the website and other communications I’ve read. I can’t wait to binge the other episodes!! Randi @kasandklostyle
