Find time for this podcast!

I know. There are so many industry and business podcasts to listen to. It’s overwhelming. But some stand above the rest. The episodes of the confetti Hour I’ve listened to have always felt easy and I love that. I don’t feel like I’m sitting in a cold ballroom at a conference with a lousy lunch. Thank you Renee for a breath of fresh air!
