I’m hooked on When Women Rise!

Just listened to the interview with Bozman St. John who has been my best friend in my head for a long time now. It was a phenomenally rich and real conversation. I walked away with so many pearls and two of them are foremost in my mind. (1) Ask people what I have said or done that was meaningful to them (2) Shift from being successful to being significant. Thank you for dreaming big enough to create this platform and meaningful and inspiring content.
