A great podcast series (that I hope Beth will pick up again 😊)
I think I remember seeing Local Milks blog ages ago. I knew about the blog, but never really kept up with it (I was like that with most of the content I read back in the day). Lately I’ve become much more intentional with my own social media journey, trying I build a community and talk about what I’m passionate about (personal sustainability, houseplants, and fashion to name a few things). I heard Beth speak on Sara Tasker’s podcast, Hashtag Authentic. And I just LOVED how genuine Beth sounded. She really made me believe that I wasn’t too late to start my journey to build a business/brand/community. When I found out she had a podcast, I immediately subscribed and started listening to the series. #8 really helped me, and all the episodes have been really insightful and encouraging. The podcast hasn’t been updated for a while, but I’m HOPING Beth picks it up again. (If you’re reading this Beth, we’d love to hear more!)
