The Best of 2019

Dec 24, 2019

Hey guys and Merry Christmas. Welcome to the last episode of The Girl Means Business podcast for 20 19. That is such a crazy thing to say because this year has flown by and in one week will be welcoming a brand new year and a brand new decade. That's so crazy and 20 19 has been such an amazing year for so many reasons both personally and professionally. But one of the best things that I've done this year has definitely been this podcast. It has been so much fun a dream come true.


I've met some incredible people and I have learned some incredible things through those interviews as well as just somebody that listen. It's been such an amazing journey and I cannot wait to see what 2020 has in store. So what I thought would be fun to kind of wrap up 20 19 is do a look back at some of the best episodes that we've had so far this year. Now I didn't start this podcast until April so we only have a couple of months to go back into the archives. But we're on Episode 39.

Dec 01, 2019

Hey guys. Welcome back to another week here on the girl Means Business podcast. Couple things really quick one if the audio sounds a little wonky today I apologize. My microphone just died on me this week. Every time I plug it into my computer it tells me that it's using too much power all of a sudden so I don't know what's going on.

So again I apologize if the audio on this intro is a little bit not up to par but I think it's going to all be worthwhile because today's episode is a really really exciting one.
