Great Show for Anyone in Business
Really enjoy Dr. Theresa's conversation style with her guests. She's gifted at tapping into the essence of who they are and pulling out nuggets of wisdom from them.
Thus far my two favorite episodes were #58 (Tell Your Story) with Melissa Reaves as I greatly see the value of better storytelling in business and #54 (What is Your Business Worth) with Marcia Riner which has me thinking about the value of my business and how I can leverage the time of others to get me more hours in my day.
I highly recommend this show to anyone in business, in particular, if you fully embrace heart, hustle, and humor in what you do. #DreamHigher
Fun and informative show!
