Pure inspiration for female entrepreneurs

Starting a business as a woman is no small feat and we don’t always have our own personal cheering squad. This podcast is a great resource for reminding yourself you are not alone and the entrepreneurs you admire started somewhere too. April is such a good interviewer and speaker, I could listen all day.
