039: Rewriting the Story Your Stuff is Telling with Jennifer Burnham

Hey friends!

Welcome to episode 039 of the Candidly Speaking podcast! This was my first time recording an interview remotely, so my audio is a little scratchy at times (sorry about this!). I’ll get it figured out and fixed for my next interview. Thanks for your understanding! 🙂

Reminder: you can now listen to the Candidly Speaking podcast on Stitcher and Google Play! YAY!
