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!

Just Ok. I had to Unsubscribe.

The misuse of the word “whenever” in place of “when” makes this podcast unlistenable. Also the pfft sound I hear with each word that begins with the letter P was enough to make me unsubscribe. Good content, but the delivery could use improvement.

Raw. Real. and AWESOME!

Just wanted to say thank you to Emily and Kathleen for bringing this show to the world and for teaching us all how to do. the. work! It's easy to get lost, in your own head and discouraged as a creative entrepreneur - this show is a must listen when you find yourself in that place! There are amazing tips and tactics shared on how to be a better entrepreneur, but what's made the biggest difference in my life is the permission, and not-so-subtle nudge, Emily and Kathleen give all of us to just be ourselves (as messy, wild, exciting and creative as we may be)!
