Perfection

Deb, Jess, and Mikaela bring the perfect mix of knowledge, skills, experience, personality, wit, and humor all wrapped into one wonderful podcast. Just finished listening to episodes 101 and 102 on pricing—so informative and helpful!

The best maker podcast!

These ladies are smart, know their business, are honest and straight forward (no hype or click-bait here). Their advice is spot on and truly helpful if you have a small, product based business. Theirs is the first podcast in my ears every release! They are also funny and have great accents!
