Amazing insight and information

After having the honor of spending 15 minutes on a zoom call with Kalika, she recommended I listen to Kendra Scott’s interview with her. I too am a Jewelry Designer and Entrepreneur and often don’t know how to go from point A to B. After listening to just one podcast, I am in! This is going to the top of my listen list and Kalika has a beautiful and effective way of speaking. I love what she does, represents and will be signing up to work with her in the near future.
