New to the Business and Sarah is the best!
I am brand new to the idea of hosting a Glamping business and have slowly been working my way through the episodes. Each episode I wonder if it will apply to me and each episode I’m surprised and impressed with the guests and their responses. So far each episode has not only given me a lot to think about, it often sets me up to learn more on topics I hadn’t even considered. I am still in the wishy-washy phase, deciding if I really want to run a business, but I have to admit after every episode I find myself a little more convinced. Having a guiding hand, and all completely free has been so helpful, made the journey a little easier and has kept my excitement roaring. I have joined the Facebook group, started receiving daily emails and have started saving up to join the different programs through Inspired Courses. I am honestly so impressed with the passion and knowledge Sarah has for this business and I have never found anything like this before. It makes me feel like I have really stumbled into something that is worth my time and I really appreciate Sarah’s piece in that. Thank you!
The Mentor I was looking for
I’ve listen to her podcast twice , she’s been a tremendous voice in our new venture. Every guest provides a different take away , makes you think carefully about your decisions. I felt like I was at a complete standstill before I found Sarah . She’s now like a celebrity I hope to meet so I can thank her for getting me through the hurdles and pushing me when I was stuck . If you are serious about this business , this podcast is a must! . Thank you so much Sarah! Ana Luisa Ayala from Come Spring Farm.
Reeled back in!
I am so glad you decided to do podcasts. Can’t believe I missed knowing about them! They are very well done! Thanks!
