Easy on the ears

By Tari Mannello - Sep 18 2018
Read more
I secretly and now publicly think that no one should be doing a podcast he does not have a pleasant voice to, listen to since that is the only thing we have to anchor to the podcaster‘s message. One of the things I appreciate so much about Briana is that her friendly, genuine and upbeat personality shines right through when she speaking to you. If feels authentic, and pleasant to my ears. She combines business sense with introspective thoughts and presents it in an easy to listen to package that I enjoy. Being consistently and authentically positive is not easy and I think Briana does a great job with exactly that.

Wonderful!
