We all want that outer glow. And I'm not talking about that dewy skin, outer glow like Giselle. I'm talking about magnetism. Or as we call it around here, the “It Factor”.

It surprises most people to learn that I have a hearing loss and often leads to a lot of questions, especially since I’ve built my coaching business on the topic of communications.

While you might not be one of them, you more than likely know someone who struggles with their hearing. I hope this episode gives you some insight into their world.
