Wednesday Wisdom-Playing Big



Today your nuggets of wisdom will come to you via audio!  I had the opportunity to interview Tara Sophia  Mohr. For those of you not familiar with her you are in for a treat! 

 Tara  is a regular blogger for the living section of the Huffington Post. Her writing  has also been published in Forbes, USA Today, More Magazine.com, Ode Magazine, and the International Business Times.  She is quite the writer and friend and honestly one of my very favorite people in the world.  

Last Fall she created a Girl Effect Blogging Campaign, and 170+ bloggers participated (including me !), and tens of thousands more people were reached with The Girl Effect Message.

Listen to our chat as we discuss what inspires her to action and claiming her own unique voice. I think you will love it.
