Inspiring story of empowerment
Ever Better may be new, but I've already found inspiration from it! This year I've begun listening to podcasts about entrepreneurship and personal development, which inspires me to move forward on my own goals. I loved this interview. Hearing from a grandmother who's kicking butt as an inventor and salesperson helps remind us it's not too late to jump in with a new venture of our own. Vogt has great rapport as an interview, and I can't wait to hear more episodes.
