Alyssa is a great teacher and copywriter. She took strings of words that I have her and in minutes sent it back to me in an enticing paragraph! I'm glad she's expanding her skills to podcasting so I can listen to her during my walks or while driving. Thank you Alyssa!

Alyssa Martin’s new platform for Confessions of A Female Entrepreneur is eye-opening! Not only are her interviews thoughtful and straight-forward, but her guests are engaging and down-to-earth. As a new entrepreneur, you tend to have voices of overwhelm and “where do I start next? Is there really a market out there for what I want to do? Am I not doing enough? Or am I probably experiencing normal qualms?” What was instantly enlightening to me after listening to a few podcasts, is how these women entrepreneurs reveal they were NOT indeed overnight successes, but had set their minds to a steady pace of hard work! The podcast with Alyssa and her guests gives you the welcome feeling of listening in on a conversation. There is something about the in-person confessions articulated from women out there rocking’ it…so very inspiring! What a great resource!
