I met Bobbi Rebell when we both got invited to speak at Mom 2.0 a few years before the pandemic. We shared a cab to the airport, and a friendship was born. Bobbi has been there for me in so many ways: she encouraged me when I was thinking of writing a book, she gave me advice on starting a podcast (her own has over 1M views), and she interviewed me at my book launch party (which I wrote about on my blog and later for Writer’s Digest). She is a true friend, and a talented broadcaster, author and business professional in the financial media industry. She is someone I am proud to have in my corner, as I’m in hers.
