A MUST for female entrepreneurs!

I discovered this podcast after reading the book which I bought solely by judging the book by the cover. I literally cannot believe I let this book sit in the unread section of my shelf for A YEAR! My answers and inspiration were next to my bed this whole time. Of course the book left me wanting more!!! Enter WorkParty podcast! I never listen without my notebook handy. So many gold nuggets. I love the style of the interviews including rapid fire questions at the end and book recommendations which I rapid buy. There is a huge diversity of women entrepreneurs with different backgrounds. Jaclyn’s voice is very pleasant like gumdrops. Colorful, firm-ish but sprinkled with sweetness. Haha. Her excitement but organized interviews help keep the conversation on track. The passion from the guests describing how they build their dream - well it’s like contagious endorphins. Like indirectly they are telling me “girl you can get there, keep running!”
