Episode #174: How to Energize People Every Day

With Kristi Hedges, author of The Inspiration Code

Today’s guest first came on the scene with the release of her first book back in 2011.

Her name is Kristi Hedges, and that book was The Power of Presence: Unlock Your Potential to Influence and Engage Others. The book experienced a bit of an inflection point in 2014 and Kristi’s career has been a whirlwind ever since.
