Hey and welcome to the fifth episode of the ‘I Want My Life Back Project’ podcast!


In this episode, I interview Kallie from TellTell Poetry and TellTell Copywriting. Kallie moved to Portugal just over a year ago as her businesses are location independent – I am very jealous, Portugal sounds amazing!

Just a quick heads up – there are a couple of four-letter words in here. If that offends you, you may want to skip it. Don’t though, it’s an awesome episode and there are only 2 swear words, blink and you’ll miss them 😉
