Stay INCREDIBLE Tiffany! How does she do it...
Tiffany Southerland has managed to package an intelligent, resource laden podcast that consistently delivers professional information from the heart. I have not listened to the entire "How does she do it" library but I've found the episodes that I've heard to be incredibly thoughtful and empowering. In today's age of endless social media content it is refreshing to come across a podcast...actually a person that is a living example of the information she shares.
You have a gift Tiffany. Thank you for creating a platform that allows you to share it with us.
