Great Return Episode!

Thank you for being candid about your journey; I can definitely relate, as I am sure others can, as well. Your presence is appreciated and I’m so happy you’re back at it!

Courageous Artistry ,

Awesome!

I’m a former guest on this podcast but I think it’s a must-listen for anyone who works in the industry or aspires to do so. Jamila is warm, relatable, and knowledgeable!

Soooo needed and helpful!

This fills a vital need—fantastic perspectives on how to bridge the gap between training/dreaming and WORKING! Love you and your guests, Jamila!!!
