Love love love

I've really taken alot away from this podcast. There is alot of tangible advice and motivation that failures are just getting you closer to a better success. Catherine conducts the interviews flawlessly, love her questions and conversations with her guests.

Most Well Rounded Business Podcast

This has got to be one of the most enjoyable ways to learn about running a small business. Although geared toward photographers, there are so many other aspects that are covered in the interviews that are conducted. I have learned so much and been so inspired by every one of these episodes, whether in my field of family photography or not. Give it a listen; you won’t be disappointed!
