Ep #228: Your Value

5/25/2021
Today’s topic is something that I’m really fired up about. I’ve thought about talking about it on this podcast for a long time, but something happened that pushed me to finally take the leap. What am I talking about? The gender wage gap and, more specifically, how we value ourselves.
