Today’s guest is a successful podcast host and influencer, not so long ago she was a correctional officer. Many days she would wake up unhappy and realized if that was going to change she needed to make it happen. She cast aside her self-doubt and fear to create a job that she loves. Like many successful entrepreneurs, she shows us that with determination and perseverance you can find a career that is fulfilling and makes you happy.

To date, she has interviewed over 220 high-achieving business owners and CEOs on her own podcast, The Business Building Rockstars Show. She knows a thing or two about what makes an interview guest stand out and how to turn listeners into leads. She took that knowledge and launched a second podcast, Get Guest Ready, and her venture, Interviews that Convert. She inspires and helps business owners increase their visibility exponentially through podcast guesting. For her achievements, Huffington Post has recognized her as one of 50 Must-Follow Women Entrepreneurs in 2017.
