International Women’s Day!
At Lauri’s Lemonade Stand we Celebrate Women Every Day!
 
I love days when we celebrate the women in our lives!  Today, I thought I would simply give a huge shout-out to all of the women who agreed to be on my podcast.  It’s been almost a year (next month) and those early birds truly were taking a chance on me in being among the first to come under the interview knife so to speak as I was learning to fly.  Thank you!
