On today’s episode we welcome Dorothy Illson, host of The Do Well and Do Good Podcast. The show is focused on talking to guests who have achieved a level of financial freedom and use that opportunity to give back in some way. So Dorothy’s show is not all that different from ours here at Causepods, as she is highlighting great causes and the people behind them.

In our conversation, we cover the beginnings of the podcast and how Dorothy got started in the podcasting world. We then go on to chat about her business and how she manages her time between all of her different commitments. Dororthy tells us about the lessons she has learned and hurdles she has faced in this role, and really stresses the value she sees in consistency and sticking to plans and deadlines. We also find time to get a few tips from Dorothy for any hopeful Cause Podcasters out there! For a great chat with a wonderful guest, be sure to tune in!
