Magnetic Mismatch ,

Good stuff! Very helpful

Interesting stuff, definitely learning a lot listening to this podcast. The first episode in particular reminded me of not being afraid to reach out and make connections with people/vendors even if it may feel intimidating especially if they are a big name. We are definitely lucky with having social media as another tool at our disposal to get our name/brand out. Subscribed!

Blessed o yes ,

Great podcast

Great podcast! Keep it up!
