First Time Listener

I tuned into The Other Side of Potential for the first time with episode 98 featuring Michelle Arpin Begina. I'm a huge fan of Michelle's and seek out her speaking opportunities as much as I can. I was excited to see this new interview and be able to learn more about her unique background that makes her a HUGE thought leader in the field and is always thinking ahead of what the industry is going to look like. I am keeping my fingers crossed that Michelle is able to come back with Sharon to talk more about the Exchange and any new opportunities Michelle has coming up in the future.

Closing gap on potential

Sharon gets to the inside baseball of what it really takes to realize ones full potential. Her conversations are multidimensional and uplifting!
