I love this podcast!

This podcast is a great listen for anyone who is creative or looking for resources to grow as a creative. The guests on the podcast always share really great advice and I’m always learning about some thing new, whether it’s a resource to grow my business or a new artist I can look up! I also love that Nicole shares from the heart. Highly recommend!

Just what I needed!

Your podcast on what to do during the pandemic was outstanding. It hit on all the things that were on my mind. I’ve been feeling down on what to do. I’ve been in wholesale for over 30 years and was on the road to a record sales year. My business is mostly tied to the resort industry and when ski towns , cruise lines and National Parks closed all my orders went away. You gave me the boost needed to get moving again. I’ve reinvented several over the years, so onward ho!

It’s like your in my head!

I just found this podcast and I am so happy I have. I have learned so much from other episodes and look forward to learning more. This episode however, wow! It is like you were hosting this episode in my head and reading my thoughts. I don’t celebrate that people have difficulty with self care but I am so happy to learn it is not “just me”. I am not the only maker/artist/person struggling with this?! What?! Thank you so much for sharing and all the wonderful advice. ❤️
