Slightly obsessed

I can’t say enough good things about this show! Kelsey is so real and down to earth. She shares the good, the bad, and the #RealMomLife. I love learning from someone who has already gotten to where I want to be and she breaks it down into such digestible information that it makes it easy to want to listen to another episode. Highly recommend!

Tiny Baby Business

I am so glad I listened to this because this is an episode every entrepreneur should hear regardless of what stage or “phase” of the business they are in. Foundation and systems are the things that get you from A to B. But we all get too stuck with B. And B don’t really happen until A does. Great show!
