    I LOVED this episode, and thanks so much for introducing us to Chichi! I didn’t know of her work so I’m going to check out her site. I can totally relate to those scary down moments when you doubt because there are few comments, not as many followers as you’d like, etc.

    And the tip about bundling things that you already have to offer something at a lower price point to give people the opportunity to become your clients even if they don’t have lots of money to spend on your products.

    Thanks for another amazing, inspiring episode!

    • Yay! So glad you enjoyed it 🙂
