Power of Words with Emily Heidt

Writing Enthusiast and Coach, Emily Heidt, joins me on this episode so we can nerd out about writing–just kidding! Though we do nerd out about writing (have I mentioned I have a B.F.A. in Creative Writing?), Emily shares her insights into the power of words and how writing can help each of us along the path to our individual successes. We also talk about the limiting belief of being “too young” for success and how to bust through it!
