Learned so much from this podcast

Gotten such valuable advice from people I could never afford. Love this content, and the HIST is such a great listen!

Honest, Candid, Thought Provoking all packaged for bite sized consumption

Illana exudes a ’tell it like it is’ confidence along with her wise business perspective leaving me wanting to listen to more episodes of her bite sized podcast.

Refreshingly candid and thought-provoking advice

Let's be honest - there's no shortage of (really bad) business advice out there and with Good Business, Illana cuts through the fluff and tells it like it is. I find myself re-listening to certain episodes because there are so many good nuggets in each one. This is for anyone either starting OR has been in business for a while and things are jamming quite like you'd want them to.
