Kayla, I found you through the Facebook group LMBDW. At first I was following you because I was intrigued by a post you’ve made about your successes with Tribe and now listen to your podcasts as it is so refreshing and authentic, and of course great business advice! I love that you don’t try to be something that you’re not, and generally very transparent with everything you do. I think this is a big reason why you have such a loyal following. I’m rooting for your continuous success and thank you for sharing what you’ve learned along the way!
