This Week on the Podcast

Obstacles & Challenges This week I’m chatting about COVID 19 hitting too close to home, facing fear, and making sure my scrapbook is a lot more than a highlight reel.  I’m also sharing a quick story about meeting a retired Brigadier General  who once served as the U.S. Defense Attaché in the People’s Republic of China at the American Embassy in Beijing.  Known for his  diplomatic skills, this esteemed gentleman  negotiated the release of two dozen American military crew members who were detained by China after their plane crash landed.  You can imagine how excited I was to meet him!    Join me for this week’s episode on iTunes or Google Play or find me here.
