Jesse Kamm pod

I greatly enjoyed this pod and listening to her down to earth approach to her business and life. It’s very inspiring. My only question would be, what is the back up plan? Is there one? Should there be? What if one day no one wants her pants? What if she gets injured surfing and she cannot physically do all the things that she does herself. It would have been nice to hear her response to those what if questions. Having a safety net is a nice thing.

Inspiring and entertaining

This is an inspiring and entertaining podcast. It’s one of the few that I savor, and not rush through. Love it.

Turning the beat around

Beyond the quality of the program and its guests (which are topnotch), here's a podcast that completely turns me on, intellectually and emotionally - a pure antidote to all the commercial nonsense - seeks and fulfills my soul....and ps. Ivy Ross is my hero.
