    Episode #156 What Would You Do with $24k a Day?

    What do you do every day? Every hour? Every minute? We all like to think we know how we spend ALL of our time, but what if instead of spending 1 hour you were spending $1,ooo? What if you were given $24k a day to spend with no roll over to the next day? Spending that 1 hour at the gym might not look so bad. Come with me as I reflect on what I do daily and how I'm looking to spend my $24k in 2023.

Real deal

Dana is the real deal when it comes to capturing the depth of an artist’s journey in this Biz. I’ve also shared her podcast with my “finance” husband & he loved it too! She has a way with words & movement. A true gift. It’s a must listen for anyone in the Entertainment Industry who is interested in navigating the tumultuous waters with authenticity, grace & badassery.
