    As Ronne and Jessica take a look back at their journey together during the inception of Jessica’s podcasting agency, Instapodcasts, you will uncover the true meaning of knowing your value in both your business and your personal lives. Tune in and learn how to not only stand in your worth but to speak it to those around you as well.
    So come join in on the dynamic conversation about authentic mentorship, inner healing, and, above all, validating your damn self!

    “My true question to every single woman on here - How much longer are you going to wait for someone else to put the stamp of approval on your purpose?”
