6. Our final thoughts/YouTube Video

We felt extremely honoured to have been approached by Caroline to do a podcast interview. We haven’t done something like this before but did not want to let this opportunity pass us by for that reason. We were nervous as it was something new to us, but we were excited to be contributing to the great work that Caroline Brown does. We decided to make this a topic because we felt passionate about it.

We hope this topic is useful, and we would like to wish anyone reading/listening a great day, evening and remainder of the week.
