    I’m glad this was the second podcast of the foolish adventure that I listened to. If it was the first I probably would not download any more and just walk away. I found the guest to be extremely unpleasant. She sounded unprepared and frankly was boring. I feel as if I wasted my time listening to this podcast as there was nothing actionable, interesting or insightful in the discussion. Sorry to be so blunt, but wow.

    • Not all guest’s experiences and stories speak to everyone. This week’s episodes weren’t meant to speak to men anyways. It’s a celebration of women entrepreneurs for women entrepreneurs. Amy has a unique history and perspective that I hope will be an inspiring tale for other women.

    I’m not sure if I heard it right, but she said that she didn’t finish high school, dropped out of college, couldn’t code well, but then she learned how to code by having someone teach her? I was a little lost there. I thought she was advocating doing things on your own, learning through work, as opposed to being taught.

    Very interesting podcast nonetheless. I see how Amy could rub people the wrong way, men or women.
