  1. Wow! I enjoyed this podcast so much. I listened to it while I was doing things I should be outsourcing. Great questions as always. I was so impressed by Kimra’s confidence in her vision and her fearless go-for-it attitude. Thank you Kimra and Emma!

  2. Excellent interview Emma! Kimra is such a great example of what it takes to create success as an entrepreneur. So many powerful distinctions for success that anyone can learn from and apply to their own business. Success always leaves clues for those willing to recognize and apply those clues.
