Game changer

This podcast has been a game changer for my business. After finding Kate through a blog post, subscribing to her emails and then learning about her podcast, I’ve been hooked. I really appreciate two things-this podcast delivers incredible information and in an efficient and quick way! Thank you, Kate!

One of the best…

In my window treatments business, I often find myself driving between appointments and installations. I discovered Kate’s podcasts about 18 months ago and I’m a faithful listener. I have listened to all of them on my daily journeys to visit customers. Even though she may not be discussing window treatments, there is always a nugget of business information or encouragement that I can apply to my business. Her interesting delivery, thoughtful examples, interesting business tidbits will keep me listening for as long as I’m in business. I wonder what I will learn from Kate today?
