00:01:31.680 --> 00:01:40.830

00:01:41.250 --> 00:01:49.830
Margy Feldhuhn (she/her): As CEO and showing up and coaching and pouring into everybody else I was like I really feel like I need somebody who's like pouring into me.

00:02:07.500 --> 00:02:09.360
Margy Feldhuhn (she/her): And so I reached out to Anna and i'm like.
00:02:09.750 --> 00:02:20.790
Margy Feldhuhn (she/her): All right, like what a what a kathleen's programs look like you know she's got like some six months programs and there's like a group they're like group programs with a call once a week, which I really was looking for something one on one, but I figured i'd ask like.
00:02:21.150 --> 00:02:24.750
Margy Feldhuhn (she/her): What does it look like and Anna was like you know I actually think.
00:02:25.770 --> 00:02:37.140

Jessica is a terrific show host, asking just the right questions!
It was an honor to be interviewed by Jessica! She invented podcast booking and has been in the business since the beginning. She’s also an amazing interviewer. Her questions. Her segues.

It seems like the purpose of the show is to highlight the company’s “achievements” to entice people with $$ to work with them. In my opinion, it’s basic info that’s almost common sense as a biz owner.
