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!

Refreshing and full of relatable calligraphy advice

Shelly and Emma are great to listen to. They offer amazing, relatable lessons from their own experiences starting a calligraphy business. No cheeky tangents, just down to earth advice and funny anecdotes here and there.

So fun to listen to!

I really enjoy this podcast! Shelly has such a soothing voice (she should record an audiobook!😊), and as an American, I can’t get enough of Emma’s accent and her direct manner of speaking. They’re both so relatable and obviously care a lot about helping others!❤️
