Very niche but necessary

I love her specific questions and how she’ll ask about income, marketing, etc. it’s refreshing to hear typically non-specific wellness people (“do what’s best for you!” “We all have our journeys!”) talk more candidly about the business side of their profiles. You can hear them slip into their usual interview schticks before she asks a pivoting question that keeps them real. Keep it up!
