Hello, Friends,

Man, it is hard to believe I just typed two 9s together to indicate which episode this is…  99!  How did we get here?!?  We’ll spend the next episode looking back at how such is the case… BUT even more importantly, we have an AWESOME episode to share, including our Featured Conversation with Taliyah Brooks.  Taliyah is a professional track & field athlete and hopeful for the U.S. Olympic Team next Summer.  She’s also an NCAA and SEC champion who knows much about her sport AND how to make an impact outside her sport.  A new friend, for sure! Enjoy!Taliyah Brooks
