In the midst of all the craziness that 2020 has brought us, I made it my duty to figure out how to help the businesses and entrepreneurs who were struggling to make ends meet or get their feet off the ground.
I took out my rolodex and opened it up to the world. Almost every week, I interviewed an entrepreneur, expert, game changer or influencer live on Instagram for you.
I call this segment of interviews - PowerTalks.
PowerTalks are my way of giving you power. The power to push through. The power to shift. The power to dig deep and do the work. The power to persevere.
Now that 2020 is coming to an end, I've round up 10 of my favorite episodes.
We are going to count down from 10 to 1 this week. Below are episodes 10-6:
