Barbara Gonzalez: It's Okay To Pursue Your Own Version Of Happy

Barbara Gonzalez and I started Creating Espacios in 2016. We were both incredibly new to the podcast world and found ourselves learning as we went along. Together we learned how smaller rooms make for better podcast studios and the best systems to put in place before interviews. 

We were also first time business partners, but longtime friends. 

We talked about life just as much as we talked about the logistics behind an episode, which is the overall narrative of how things began to change at the end of last year. We were both at a crossroads of what would happen next with Creating Espacios — this episode fills in those gaps for you.
