Can I be interviewed on your podcast?
Awesome podcast. Loved Tania’s interview Yu let the guests speak and being a new entrepreneur I enjoyed every bit of Tania’s journey. I started www. DOTUrMindS.com in the hope of helping women in corporate and teams gain clarity and take a pause with ancient Indian Mindful dot art events.
I would love to share my journey so far.
Very insightful Podcast!
I enjoyed listening to this trio, and I particularly liked hearing about the challenges and joys of starting up and owning your business.
I was able to relate to some of the successes and failures within my own business, as the podcast conversation continued between the hosts and guest! Looking forward to the next episode
Love the podcast
I worked with AJ on a business and he always wanted to know what the team was thinking. He’s a smart guy who has done some amazing things.
Cheers to both!
