Honesty and Happiness

If you’ve ever met Garland, you know how bright her energy is. Better than Starbucks! Positive vibes with inspiring information and you believe what she’s saying because she is a good person and you believe goodness is honest and real. In a business where leverage is king, Garland is the Queen of Positivity in Commercial Real Estate and you find yourself listening and soaking in the those vibes and wanting more. You don’t meet many people like that anymore. I am happy to recommend this podcast and anything else this lady produces.
