Just what an entrepreneur needs!
I absolutely adore this podcast! It gets my mind in a place of peace and determination that can only be experienced, not described. You owe it to yourself to listen to and execute the things she lays before you.
So much important information!!!
I have shared this podcast with friends who sell handmade items. And although I am an artist, I learned so much about the hand-painted "side items" I've started making. This is a REAL business podcast for REAL small business people!!!
Refreshing and Inspiring
I've followed Shunta for several years now from her Because of Zoe bow business, and was so excited to learn of her podcast! I truly love it and learn so much with every episode. Although it is packed with really practical information, what I love most is that it is not usually your cookie cutter business advice that you can google or look up on pinterest. Her joy and love for business, learning, and people always come across in a really fun and inspiring way!
