In this episode, Molly Pittman answers a question that came in from one of our listeners: What does she ‘consume’ in her personal life to keep her inspired and rejuvenated? Molly shares her most favorite media channels (that have nothing to do with Digital Marketing)! But they each have ’a special magic’ that has helped them grow organically.
