BeGreatEveryday with Allah-mi

This podcast was highly interesting and relevant. I found it to be a deeply inspirational, motivating and captivating session with Allah-mi. The topics Kim and Leslie touched upon for Allah-mi to share and reflect upon her personal journey were on point!!!! Allah-mi's life experiences and both her vulnerability and strength exemplify how individuals can "Be Great Everyday". Thanks, Allah-mi!!
