I have just discovered this podcast and adore the content. I’ve been running my business for 4 years and it’s so great to hear from boss ladies who have grown beyond that with clever insight
Thoughtful insight delivered in the sweetest way.
This is my favorite podcast to listen to first thing in the morning to gently ease me into the day in a thoughtful and productive way. The hosts are so sweet but give the best advice. I just love it all! Listen if you need some insight into the tough questions that come with running your own business, or just want to feel like you’re hanging out with some sweet gals.
Inspiring and friendly
I love this podcast as it inspires me to not think the “rules” we all grew up with in the 80s and 90s are unbreakable. Although I don’t think I’d ever have the guts to start my own creative enterprise, the ideas are transferable to other work environments and all areas of life. The fact that Sara and Jen are willing to admit they’re fallible and face challenges and how they’ve worked through things at such a young age makes their chats really inspiring.
