Kind and Honest

Kristin and Laura are so real and authentic about life! I love the practical tips they share that can be applied to any area of your life. The guests they have on bring wisdom and insight! Highly recommend!

So relatable

I can’t tell you how much I enjoy listening to these women! This podcast is amazing because they are so vulnerable with their own experiences that they are struggling with and it’s so nice to know they haven’t figured everything out yet either. Their personalities are fun and I totally would want to hang out with them.

Incredible podcast run by incredible women

This is truly such a wonderful podcast. If you are feeling overwhelmed, or discouraged, or like you haven’t made any REAL progress on your goal(s), this is the podcast for you. Listening to this podcast is the equivalent of going to a good friend for some sage advice. I couldn’t recommend it more!!
