    Holy Crap that was an amazing podcast and interview. I started off listening to this because I love what you do Steve but I don’t have a musical bone in my body nor a desire to find one. I am so happy I listened to this!!! Cathy Heller is a fireball!! Such great advice and energy. Definitely what I needed to hear. Steve and Cathy can’t thank you enough!!!!
