  1. Dear Julie,

    My name is Alexis Fedor, and I host a podcast called Artists In Business, which aims to help female artists between 30 and 55 build thriving businesses with and for their art by giving them practical tips, inspiration and, most importantly, raising their financial IQ. Each Friday I feature a financial expert on the show to discuss a different aspect of running a business from a financial standpoint.

    I would love to have you as my guest!

    Here is the link to the show on iTunes:

    It would be such an honor.

    I look forward to hearing from you!
