Perfect podcast for women in business

I love listening to all the podcasters who have a proven track record of success. I started learning from her husband’s program a couple of years ago. But there is something about this podcast that - the way she presents the information- it is more actionable for me. I’ve only been listening for about a month and what I’ve taken action on is also affecting my bottom line. I suspect it’s because I’m a woman listening to a woman and it suits more how I think and engage with the world and my business. Highly recommended for everyone, but especially for women.
