Some of the episode highlights are:
1. Interesting story about how god guided her to the journey of optometry.
2. Understand the ups and downs of being a contract optometrist. (You dont want to miss out on some amazing negotiation tips and tricks)
3. Learn more about the story behind her beautiful hair and skin care routine
4. Learn how adding a "Me Spin" on social media can help you excel and grow your brand
& much more...
