First Time Listening! — Episode with Nikki Nash

Emily is such a fabulous podcast host! I loved the podcast episode with Nikki Nash. The aha moments were the best and I loved the energy you both brought to the episode since it was my first time tuning in! I always feel like marketing is so nuanced but it was refreshing to hear that a marketing plan is a simple roadmap that will help you accomplish your goals.
