    That woman is Amazing!
    Incredibly talented and committed in what she does. It was also a great reminder to me as her husband of the work ethic she has put into and still doing as a brand ambassador.
    She has been honored no doubt to have our home and her creations to be shared with such a large platform, but also on the flip side of that coin, the “total package and value” she brings as a brand ambassador is unmeasurable. I see it first hand

    Thanks for having her on your podcast.
    Great job!
