In this episode, I’m talking to Carly Liedtke, who you might recognize from her own podcast With a Dog. She recently went solo with the show after co-hosting it with her fellow dog loving friend, Issy. We talk about the pros and cons of working on a business with a friend and how the two of them decided to pivot when Issy needed to step back from the podcast.
Dog podcasting isn’t the only thing Carly and I have in common, she also spent some time living in London so we got a chance to talk about the differences in dog friendly culture between the US and England.
Before listening to this interview, I want to recommend an amazing video series that just dropped today. You might have heard of Marie Forleo, she’s the founder of B-School and the author of Everything is Figureoutable.
I’m a major fan of Marie and have been a part of the B-School community since 2020. That’s why I can say with utmost confidence that you do not want to miss the free video training Marie is releasing this week. It kicks off with 6 Essentials to a Thriving Profitable Business where you’ll learn why big hearted people like us are wired to succeed in a digital world, plus Marie will give you the 6 pillar roadmap to get your online business running smoothly. Get access to this free training (plus 2 more later this week).
