Honest, helpful and encouraging
As a mum about to start blogging I found this podcast after following Ruth’s website. I was uncertain st first but its not just about blogging. It’s about the fear of every day life,
Encouragement to face those fears and to take a step out of your comfort zone and doing it. That’s courage
This podcast encourages courage
Inspiring and Empowering
I love Ruth and her podcast episodes are great, particularly the ones with the guest stars. Her regular solo podcasts are full of gold nuggets but do feel a lot like an audio book where she’s just reading from a script. I love audio books so it doesn’t bother me too much, but I would like it to have a little more live-action with Ruth just speaking from her heart directly. Overall, the messages are great and inspiring so it’s genuinely worth a listen!
10 / 10 would do again!
Love this podcast! Laura Belgray’s episode was THE BEST. So good to get into meaty details and feel like you’re privy to a really juicy convo that comes with killer takeaways. Good feels all ‘round.
