I always knew that when I started this show, I would be in it for the long-haul, but of course we still have to celebrate this milestone! So this week we have a special episode that’s a super fun spin on a Q&A AND our special guest who is asking the questions is the show manager, KELSEY! Kelsey is my right hand woman when it comes to making this thing a success, and I can’t wait for you to meet her– she’s literally a ray of sunshine and I love her so much.

So the format for this episode is ‘73 Questions’ and 73 answers, from yours truly! Which is inspired by the Vogue Magazine ‘73 Questions’ series– which, I’m SORRY if I get you hooked on watching after this! But here’s the gist: 73 rapid-fire questions that can be asked and answered in under 10 minutes (if you’re Vogue, 50 if you’re us!) and, it’s only done in one take! 

I would LOVE to celebrate this milestone by giving you ALL a goodie bag and a hug if I could, but what I CAN do is hook two of our listeners up with a nice little trio of presents: a $50 gift card to TULA, a PEScience product of your choice, and a $20 Starbucks gift card, which unfortunately Starbucks is NOT a sponsor of this show… but I’m including it because who doesn’t love coffee, am I right?! 

All you have to do to be entered into the giveaway is: 
#1. Be SUBSCRIBED to the show on whatever platform you’re listening on,
#2. Leave us a rating and review on iTunes, showing us some love, and include your INSTAGRAM HANDLE so that we can cross-reference it with..
#3. Take a screenshot of you tuning in and post it to your IG story, tagging @marieewold and @grindandbegratefulpodcast.

Entering will take you 2, MAYBE 3 minutes and we’re choosing 2 winners, so your odds aren’t looking too shabby (: 
We’ll contact our winners directly via Instagram DM in just 1 week, so get that entry in ASAP! 

And while I don’t have a Starbucks discount code, you guys know that you can always save $$ on TULA skincare and PEScience supplements with code “MARIE”, right?? Okay great, just checking.
