Such an inspirational podcast!

I am so happy I found this podcast! I’m taking over a family business that is in great need of some modernization, and I love hearing about each entrepreneur’s struggles and successes. I find that Monica’s specific and in depth questions are really insightful and can be actionable for a any new or existing business owner!

Addicted!

Love all the content and information that comes from this podcast. Monica is not only inspiring in her own career but approaches the different interviews with great questions. I literally take notes as I listen to each episode. The only grip I may have, I need more episodes!!! I'm already almost done with all of them.

Keep up the great work Monica! Loving the podcast.
