hello help a ,

Addicting!

I just binge watched season 1 and ate it all up. This podcast is so applicable to female entrepreneurs and every episode is so engaging. Looking forward to the next season.

Interesting concept

Definitely an innovative podcast. Inspiring stories. Just wish the participants wouldn’t yell over each other so often, mics have volume and it is especially hard to listen when the hosts are yelling over the guest speaker without adjusting the mic volume, or waiting to speak once a speaker has stopped talking. Nice to hear about the empowering women behind so many successful businesses.

Inspiring

I'm a female founder who wishes a podcast like this had been around when I started my business 20 years ago. Thoroughly enjoying the down-to-earth vibe, the insightful questions founded in Natasha and Erin's real-world experience, and the inspiring guests.
