She Walks Her Talk

Barbara exercises her inner bold with every podcast episode. She skillfully interviews guests who bring solid insights into what it means to be bold in the face of everyday challenges. I recommend you listen to her first episode first so you know what you’re in for. It’s quite a ride! — Marylyn King, Chief Message Maker at TheExpertOfChoice. com
