GREAT tips to kill with digital marketing
As a small business owner with big growth goals, this podcast is one of my favorites. Rachael
I really resonate with your stance on creating, maintaining or utilizing ‘former career’ relationships and connections. This is incredibly important, so much so to everyone, right now especially... with lack of connection. The refreshing relevance of relationships, new and existing, is important, over our ‘virtual reality.’
Your conversational way is so light and engaging! Well done!
