    Great podcast! True Story Maggie – I just discovered you on Pinterest! Came to your site for the first time and found you interviewing Melyssa – I recently finished her List Surge class and I’ve been impressed with all she has to say. They say the internet is a big place – but sometimes it feels like a small (friendly!) world!!

      Thanks Liza! And I’m glad you’ve found your way over here! And it’s funny how something so massive can be so small – it must be because all the awesome people know each other. 😉 Thanks for commenting!

    Fabulous interview, Maggie!
    I’ve BARELY used Pinterest for my business – I think I have, maybe, 4 business pins. However, I DO have a business account which links to my website.

    Weirdly, with simply doing that – Pinterest is almost always the number 1 driver of traffic.
    Clearly, I need to step up my pinnin’ game.

    And BoardBooster?! Hello! LOVE THAT little treasure, it sounds incredible – and doesn’t appear to cost a fortune either!

    OK, I’m a total Pinterest geek, but I’ve never fully know how to use it for business. Melyssa, I’m geeking out on your advice!
