Own It! 228 | Customer Service: Good, Bad & Ugly

Nicola and Judith share and swap stories, the good, the bad and the ugly, barmen and serving staff for starters and customer service online and off.

 

In The Show

Nicola is back from Las Vegas and staying in Shoreham for a few days with family before she returns to Greece. She tells Judith about her last couple of days at the conference  – a cruise, a mansion, hummingbirds – and about the film-maker who has invited her to speak in Dublin in July.

Judith is full of the joys of spring, and talks about sunrises and being able to see the full moon from her bed. She introduces the focus of the week with two stories that inspired it.

 

What’s Fuelled Their Fire?

Nicola has really enjoyed spending time with personal development people for a week and realising that she has a personal development product she can bring to Audible and eBook formats.

Judith appreciates podcast listener Amanda Johnson for being Own It’s 8thPatreon, bringing total patronage up to $39 a month.
