BravoGol ,

Timely and precise

Everything you didn't know you needed to know about podcasting. A couple hours every month to keep your feed up to date with changes. Thank you R & E!

anna@nomoresleepless ,

❤️❤️❤️

I just published my podcast. I used to listen to this for motivation, inspiration and to hear from other podcasters. Thank you so much for the great content!

Free (Top Tier) Consulting!

I would tell my podcast clients to renew the contract of any consultants who provided this level of value and insight. Instead, it's here for free on "The Feed".

Thanks Elsie and Rob for actionable takeaways every month. - MG in L.A.
