(12:06) - Goals and self doubt at the beginning - “It takes a year of podcasting to really feel like you know what you're doing.”
(16:04) - How Goli’s podcast grew into something else- “Sometimes it's just pushing through, but a lot of it was me really working on my mindset and realizing why am I doing this.”
