Celes is amazing!
SO thankful I found Celes and her Personal Excellence blog and now podcast! First I was reading her words of wisdom, but I love podcasts because you can listen anywhere; driving, before bed, etc. I only came across her recently, but she's such a genuine person. Celes, if you're reading this, you are an inspiration and I'm really happy to have your encouraging lessons in my life as I strive for true Personal Excellence.

Wonderful Words of Wisdom
I've been a reader of The Personal Excellence Blog for years and was so excited to see Celes was adding a new platform for her readers. She continues to give of herself with this podcast and has such a knack for getting to the heart of things. I am grateful for her invaluable advice and insight each time I hear it. I can't recommend the podcast or website enough. -Whitney M.
Love this podcast
Thank you Celes for doing this podcast. I was hoping she would start one and now that she has am so appreciative of it and can’t wait for new episodes. The best part of this podcast is how down to earth, practical and no-nonsense it is. Celes doesn’t speak in theory but presents personal development principles with practical steps that have worked for her so it’s based on reality, not a fantasy. She’s on our side, has walked the walk and now guiding others along. My favorite podcast on personal development and growth.
