Girl Talk with J. Belle is going on hiatus
This past year alone has been one hell of a year to say the least for everyone but for me it's been especially rough. Trying to keep going without taking a break and then feeling bad for taking one has been insane. With that said, I wanted to focus more on "The Gossip Minute" and take a break from this podcast to give myself more energy to build that and my brand more. Thank you to everyone who has watched, listened and shared my podcast or taking anything from it.
