A sneak peak inside the episode
“When you opened your center, you thought that it would be like slumber parties and lollipops. I’ll never forget those words because it’s so impactful. And that’s what a lot of leaders are hoping, is that they they create this beautiful business and then we just attract all these amazing people.

And then it just becomes a heartbreak when it’s like, wait a second, that hasn’t happened yet.”
