Love these ladies and love this podcast!

I just joined the FB page a couple of weeks ago and started the e-book today. Decided to listen to the podcast while I was cleaning today - started with episode 1 and have been listening for a few hours. Great information and they are so fun to listen to - it’s going to take quite a while to get caught up to the current episode, but I really look forward to hearing them all!
