Felena asks great questions
What I love about this show is that Felena takes each guest back to the beginning of their career (and even childhood). It's refreshing and validating to hear everyone's nonlinear career path. Plus, Selena introduces so many interesting and impact-driven women entrepreneurs.
Informative and Inspiring!
I’ve listened to several of Felena’s interviews on the Flight Club podcast, and I always come away feeling that I’ve learned something valuable from the featured entrepreneurs. Flight Club is an excellent vehicle for motivating, supporting, and connecting business owners.
Wonderful opportunity to share and hear others stories
I have been a guest on several podcasts and I really appreciate Felena’s approach to letting the interview “flow” naturally. This was an enjoyable experience and is a great opportunity to learn so much about women entrepreneurs.
