Amazing work

Jadah is so easy to listen to! I learn multiple things from every show, I always find myself pausing the podcast (even in the middle of a workout!) to jot some notes down for future reference. I wish every business owner would take a listen; the world of providing services is changing for the better through visionaries like Jadah :) even if you aren’t a businessperson, there are valuable lessons here that can be applied to everyone’s life!
