So glad I started listening. Great.
I greatly appreciated listening to this podcast and am leaving with great optimism for working on my business
I love podcasts and this is a recent favorite! I'm all about taking action and not just presenting fluff, which Pepper does a great job with! Her interviews feel really authentic, so you can relate to the interviewee and feel you can take the steps they did to also be successful.
