Joining me this week is April O’Leary.  April is not just a best-selling author, but also one of my friends.  In this conversation, you will hear April, and I discuss women’s empowerment.  We both talk about the need to find friends to help you through tough times, and how people pleasing can hold you back from reaching your potential.
