Perfect for small shops like me

I love Brittany’s podcast. I tried listening to some other biz podcasts but they were snoozefests and I had a hard time paying attention.

Brittany’s topics are perfect for me and my small shop (@thekeikidept). I do not have a biz background and I’m a teacher by trade. I’ve learned a lot about what I need to do legally to get my biz totally legit. Some stuff I had figured out on my own but some stuff I didn’t know.

I even did the free 20min consult with Brittany. When I make time for myself to workout (I’m a new mama to my 3rd babe)...I love listening to her podcasts.

Thank you Brittany!

SO Helpful!

Like most entrepreneurs, talking to a lawyer makes me cringe most of the time. It always means a huge spend for something I didnt necessarily sign up for!

Brittany does such an amazing job of making the legal necessities of business not sound so intimidating, and leaves you with some awesome advice for how to resolve the issues immediately.

Definitely a channel I've been binging on for the past week or so! I highly recommend her for her knowlege, fun personality, and for touching on amazing topics nobody likes talking about!

She’s Incredible

Brittany is INCREDIBLE. She is so knowledgeable, and relatable. She doesn’t make you feel stupid, even when you have NO idea what’s going on 😂 I could not recommended her enough. What a sweet thing, to have someone share their talents and skills so willingly!💕
