The modest and legendary podcaster... who was the first to invite me to speak about @freelancenotion publicly. Without her I wouldn't have any audio assets to share about my journey.

I have to say Sara was the best podcast interviewer I’ve had. And she is a woman of her word and going to release the pod soon! Thank you for allowing me to share my story @saranosocks. I think you’re awesome at this.

What's it all about?

We all hear the "overnight success" stories, but there is a huge piece of the puzzle they're leaving out!  Surely failure is a part of your journey!  My goal, to expose the "sticky middle", show you that everyone fails and you can turn that into success.
