In an age of division, what a breath of fresh air this podcast is. Nothing more important than fostering and nourishing a community of like minds and empowerment to be productive and creative. Deb Bailey is a great host and I look forward to more shows.
I love Deborah’s emphasis on building community, bolstering women’s economic power, and helping women entrepreneurs succeed. She selects great guests (I learned of her through Eleanor Beaton!), and her background as a published fiction and nonfiction author is especially appealing. I’m an avid reader, and the fact that Deborah brings that perspective resonates with me. The conversations Coach Deb’s hosting about staying motivated and connected to one’s passion are so important. Highly recommend!
Love this Podcast!
I recently listened to the episode with Nancy McKay. Hearing her past, what she went though and her vulnerabilty was so refreshing to hear. She's absolutely right, the thoughts in our head become our reality. This was a wonderful interview, Deborah. Thank you for putting this out!
