This week on the podcast I am reflecting on 2019! This is one of my favorite episodes of the year because I get to look back on where I traveled to, some of my biggest achievements of 2019, all the podcast episodes I recorded, how my business grew and changed, what I learned and so much more. Enjoy! 

This episode is brought to you in part by OfferingTree. When you’re a yoga teacher and you’re trying to build your digital presence it can be daunting.  First, you might need a website. There are a lot of great tools for building websites like Wordpress, Wix, and Squarespace.  Then you need a way to email your students.  Again there are tools for that like mail chimp and constant contact.  But that’s another account to pay for and a password to remember.  Then you need a way to schedule and register your students.  Again there are tools for that, but it’s another account to create and pay for and another password to remember.  Oh wait, how do I integrate my scheduling tool with my website… Arghhhh! Instead of putting all of this stuff off for another day because it’s too daunting, let me tell you about a better way.  OfferingTree set out to make creating your digital presence fun, easy and affordable.
