Welcome to the show!

Today I've got the amazing Jean Marrapodi with me! I've known Jean for some time now and I think she is so amazingly talented in so many areas. I'm most familiar with her work in higher education. Jean brings so much insight and intelligence to all of her work and really stimulates her students, colleagues and friends to think outside of the box. Jean is incredibly multi-talented and it's an honor to know her and have her here on the show.

Today, Jean and I talk about speaking your truth. Jean and I are both speaker's of truth and both know first hand that it can be risky to call things as they truly are.

In today's show Jean and I talk about some of her most recent experiences in the corporate world

What happens when you speak your truth and it's not so well received

Why it's crucial to stay steadfast and be clear on what your values are on speaking them when appropriate

We talk about influencers and trends in business and the corporate world and why communication and using your voice is so essential in life and business, no matter what that business looks like.

Plus, so much more!

I know you are going to love hearing from Jean!
