About the Episode

The what's what...

Today’s episode is a great conversation I had with Lindsay Hotmire. We discussed authenticity and why we crave it as humans, the authenticity flywheel that she created, building community, the importance of positioning when it comes to defining your brand, as well as what makes a story memorable and how to become a better storyteller. Lindsay also shared some details about her son’s college search, and what she thinks about the Oxford comma.
