Review of the week


Sharing thought processes

Episode 119 was very helpful to me as a listener & hobby quilter. Elizabeth does an excellent job sharing her entrepreneurial thought processes. It is validating to me to be able to choose what I say yes to. I’m just now learning to set my long range quilting goals, and having the strength & conviction to be able to say no to outside requests that don’t align with those goals. Thank you, Elizabeth, for continuing to share your experiences on your informative podcast. Wishing you much success & support in your endeavors.
