Kane Sarhan

Stacy,
I truly enjoyed the podcast episode with Kane Sarhan. It is/was very insightful and inspiring to hear Kane share his stories and evolution from small town to big city. It’s very interesting to glean from those that have ‘what it takes’ to comprehend risks and accept the challenges that make others crumble in the wake of achievement.
Your cadence and questions are always spot on. Keep up the great work!

Insightful, but wish more designers were interviewed

Great podcast. Would love if she interviewed more designers, like Liubasha Rose, as opposed to business people. Or it would be cool if there were mini-episodes where she interviewed Lead Designers from some of the best hospitality interior design firms to ask about their process for a project, their inspiration, their approach to materials, etc. (it doesn’t have to be the CEO or president of a design firm, even a Project Lead would be very fascinating.). The interviewer asks insightful questions about people’s design process and lets the guests finish their thoughts, which is so rare in podcasting and excellent.
