Fast and Smart

I love your upbeat, friendly, speedy style in your Carol Cox interview—where you both talked about the importance letting go of attachment to your audience’s response while speaking (and in anything for that matter!) I see why you're the go-to gal for accomplished, creative and innovative women (and a few good men).
