Perfect for entrepreneurs!
Coleen and Craig have a great report that comes across as genuine and supportive to their listeners. I really appreciate the subject matter since it speaks to my experiences from 20-something years ago when I was a new start-up and working a full-time somewhat "miserable" job to being a seasoned, full-time solopreneur.
Coleen and Craig have not only given me the motivation to presue a entrepreneurial living but also given me the courage to "Jump Scared". This podcast is inspirational, educational, and light hearted all at the same time.
Am I Fraud?
The discussion of Feeling a Fraud and your not, or Holy than Thou Syndrome, was very timely for me! I was considering folding it up and calling it quits before I exposed myself as a failure! So, I am Just going to try to be me, right now. Thanks. Again.
