#142 The Road to The Hook Nook Collection with Jessica Carey
If you're about to give up on your dream, don't. More often than not, the difference between success and failure is refusing to give up. And if you're scared? Kick fear in the face because fear is usually your best sign that you're doing the right thing and that you really care about the outcome. In this episode of The BHooked Podcast you'll hear Jessica Carey's inspiring story of how she kicked fear in the face and went after her biggest dream. Through the ups and downs she had to keep the excitement and fear to herself but when you're hearing this, it's no longer a secret.

Great crochet podcast!!!
Brittany does a fantastic job! I’ve been crocheting for 43 years, and I have learned many new things from this podcast. I enjoy listening while crocheting or making dinner. Brittany presents the info in such a friendly manner.
She is encouraging, relevant, and necessary in the crochet community! This is such a small thing, but I thought I'd leave it anyway, sometimes it can be hard to follow because the sound quality or the way she pronounces words are little muffled. In one episode about buying yarn, I had a difficult time following because of the pauses she needed to take to catch a breath, swallow, etc. I know it sound nit picky, but I think this is also something that professional radio DJ's must learn how to deal with. Brittany - you are amazing and I know you talk about just starting on things and getting through it. Your podcast is so relevant that it's probably worth learning how to tweak a couple things to make it sound more pro. Keep on doing your thing! thank you for all you do!
Mindfulness and Healing through Crochet
I just found your awesome podcast. Having started crochet 5 years ago, and having studied Neurology in graduate school, I found this podcast most interesting. The relaxation and mindfulness of crochet, and why I look forward to falling into my crochet projects each night, has taken on a more positive, deeper understanding. Thank you! Dayna
