Awesome. Such good information.
This is a wonderful podcast. So easy to follow, funny, honest and relatable! Just when I think, oh this week’s topic doesn’t relate to me, she comes out with another scenario and bam! It’s like she knows me! My Wednesday commutes from work are much more enjoyable with Maryellen on my drive with me!
