    Responding to Reviews Without Losing Your Head

    Responding to Reviews Without Losing Your Head

    This week I have the pleasure of interviewing Kim Walker on the topic of responding to reviews. Kim is usually my co-host. She's always my wife and business partner.
    Kim wrote this blog post a couple of weeks ago and she asked me to proofread it. I thought it was so good, and so useful to our audience, that I asked her to do a podcast episode about it. I hope you find it as useful as I did.
