Episode 24 - August 4, 2015


I've been planning on a solo show for months, but to be honest, I was afraid. I've gotten used to the interview format, so this episode was like speaking naked.


Learn about how I discovered authenticity, why I started this podcast, and what authenticity means to me. Plus I discuss the top four reasons why I think authenticity is so important.
