Authentic and Truly NY
Love listening to Madeline and her guests! Listen, share, and grow together with the Ladies of Lucknow!
My “saltines” were Ramen Noodles!
I love these interviews. It’s great to hear you capturing your guest true voices on their rise to success, rather than while their sitting up top already. I really enjoyed the interview with Clara. Like she said, its very important to love what you do! This way it’ll never feel like work.
I was hooked from the first one. So wonderful to be able to hear the insights of others on topics of creativity, self and my personal favorite - spirituality. I don't necessarily agree with all that is shared, but I have learned something, have had good takeaways from each one and I look forward to the next episode.
