Free (Top Tier) Consulting!

I would tell my podcast clients to renew the contract of any consultants who provided this level of value and insight. Instead, it's here for free on "The Feed".

Thanks Elsie and Rob for actionable takeaways every month. - MG in L.A.

Essential resource for podcasters

They have answered several of my emailed questions in the show. I have been podcasting since 2018, I host two shows and produce two others and this is very helpful as an ongoing resource.
