Excellent addition to my podcast collection!

It makes perfect sense that Dr. Alexis Carreiro would create an A(+) podcast, as most of my favorites were recommended by her. Her authenticity, wisdom, vulnerability and cutting edge media savvy make up the perfect recipe for easy - and informed - listening. We need more female college professors/entrepreneurs like her to share their experience and perspectives with such humility and grace! Thank you, dearest Alexis! Fun with Failure is one of a kind.
