Top 5 Podcasts I have ever heard

Hello! I just started listening this week and I am already obsessed. I have listened to over 10 episodes already. There is so much value in every single episode. What I love about it is it isn’t repetitive. Some podcasts add value but they basically say the same thing every episode. I love this show because every episode is so unique and valuable in its own way. There is so much helpful advice and inspiration that I have to listen with a notebook because I write notes the entire time. Thanks so much for having such an amazing show and for adding so much value. I can tell how much work you put into the quality of the show. :)

Business Improv ,

Very fun, very informative!

This podcast brings not only interesting explorations on a variety of topics, but Kathleen and Emily bring their own unique perspectives and experiences to the table along with their expert guests to make for rich and entertaining shows. Well done!

I love these ladies! ,

Simply the best!

I have a small service business with no employees and at times I can feel a little crazy and doubtful. I listen to these ladies with all of their tips and tricks and stories of their personal journey and I’m perked back up. They’re so real and fun! I also just recently bought their book and could not recommend it enough, it feels so perfectly them!
