Welcome to Episode 16 of Forging Fortune, an inspirational podcast for leaders, liberators, and impact entrepreneurs from around the world. Today’s episode is all about shattering. Shattering the glass ceilings, the old ideals of our world, and creating anew. Today I am truly honored and downright giddy to welcome Samara Bay, dialect coach, podcast host, and author to the podcast. Join us for an earth-shattering conversation about voice as a form of social justice. Warning: This episode is straight FIRE and will activate you and your voice in new and exciting ways. I cannot wait to have Samara back onto the podcast and want to extend a special thank you to her for all that she is and the gifts she continues to bring.
