Love this podcast!
I just started listening to this podcast and am barely on episode 2, but I am enjoying this so much already! I love how down to earth they both are - their conversations seem to come so naturally with helpful tips and insight into the behind the scenes! So much of what Shelly says (about feeling the need to hide her hobby at the beginning) resonated with me and I am just inspired by them both. Thank you Shelly and Emma for sharing your stories with us!
refreshing to listen to Shelley and Emma!
This is a wonderful podcast with lots of tips and insight about starting your own creative business. I just discovered them and am working my way through all the episodes. It's like having a conversation with your girlfriends without all the fluff. There are so many podcasts out there, and this is one that is definitely worth my time. Thank you Shelley and Emma!
