How to Build a Powerful Brand and Business from Home

I loved getting to chat with Carrie Wilkerson, The Barefoot Executive, herself in her Texas home recently. She was one of the very first guests I pitched to be on the show and said yes back in the day but had to reschedule, so this was a special interview to get to sit with her almost two years after I initially shared my vision for the show – which was then more of a pipe dream! She was warm and funny and has so much to teach us not only about business but about juggling life and achieving our dreams. Watch and enjoy!
