I had such a blast talking with Lauryn Evarts and Michael Bosstick, the hosts of The Skinny Confidential HIM & HER show, in person! While commonly known for their podcast, I quickly learned about their other endeavors that created the foundation of where they are today and how various parts of our journeys are so similar.
In this episode, you’ll hear about how this power couple met (and came to work together), the ins and outs of branding and why community, patience and adding value is key when trying to grow your business or brand. With all this valuable content, it’s no surprise that they’re now passionate about helping others grow their platforms, too.
There are so many takeaways in this episode and I can’t wait to hear how you implement them!
