Podcast reviews are the internet equivalent of high-fives. iTunes uses the reviews to help their algorithms rank podcast shows. Basically, the more reviews the merrier. I would be extremely grateful if you took a moment to leave a review.
Thanks for this brilliant post. Love your blog.
I am new to your site. Your “business bestie” told me about your book and I have been sucked into your site since I clicked on. This was a great interview. I felt so connected to her especially when she talked about social media. I’ve been off it for a couple years and I am loving it. This was a blessing, thanks.
Thanks for stopping by and listening to my podcast. Oh and purchasing my book!
This interview is easily one of my favorites. I just really love her perspective on everything from social media to share your message even if it’s been said before. She really is a gem.
Hi, I am new to your blog. I must say it’s amazing and I am learning alot from you.
