I’m a pet business podcaster (Kristin Morrison, host of the Prosperous Pet Business podcast) and Tori interviewed me for her Wag, Wear, Repeat podcast (episode is “Managing Employees in a 6-Figure Pet Business”, September 10, 2019). I found her questions to be deeply insightful and interesting, not your run-of-the-mill questions which always makes for a good interview! Tori’s podcast topic list is diverse and well thought out and will help you gain perspective as well as lots of tips. Highly recommend!

I’m a pet business podcaster (Kristin Morrison, host of the Prosperous Pet Business podcast) and Tori interviewed me for her Wag, Wear, Repeat podcast (episode is “Managing Employees in a 6-Figure Pet Business”, September 10, 2019). I found her questions to be deeply insightful and interesting, not your run-of-the-mill questions which always makes for a good interview! Tori’s podcast topic list is diverse and well thought out and will help you gain perspective as well as lots of tips. Highly recommend!

My fav!
