Top 5 Podcasts I have ever heard

By Amresse - Feb 16 2020
Read more
Hello! I just started listening this week and I am already obsessed. I have listened to over 10 episodes already. There is so much value in every single episode. What I love about it is it isn’t repetitive. Some podcasts add value but they basically say the same thing every episode. I love this show because every episode is so unique and valuable in its own way. There is so much helpful advice and inspiration that I have to listen with a notebook because I write notes the entire time. Thanks so much for having such an amazing show and for adding so much value. I can tell how much work you put into the quality of the show. :)
