Podcasts are GREAT
Merritt truly is an inspiration and I love her Podcasts as well as all of her content as an Influencer! I especially appreciate her latest Podcast in regards to DMs and Influencers. I do not think people realize all the hard work that goes into being an Influencer. Merritt is so kind and considerate. I just only wish that ALL people could be more like her. I also wish people would think about what they say or write before they do so! You are deeply appreciated by me, Merritt! Thank you for all that you do!!! Donna Burnette.
