Season 2, Episode 6: “Women, Wealth and Wow” with Wardee Harmon [Podcast]


Welcome to Season 2, Episode 6 of the Indie Business Podcast! In this sixth episode of our Women, Wealth and Wow! series, I introduce you to my guest Wardee Harmon of Traditional Cooking School in Sutherlin, Oregon.

Wardee and I met online four years ago when I contacted her out of the blue to ask for help with an issue that was critical to my business at the time. I had never done anything like that before, but as it turns out, I really lucked out. Not only did Wardee point me in the right direction, and share from her own personal experiences, but she also has become an amazing Internet friend and mentor. Enjoy my chat with Wardee NOW!
