On Episode 156 of the Mama Bear Dares Podcast, Leslie sits down with Valorie Burton, a wife, mother, and author of 11 books. Though Valorie came on the podcast to discuss her newest book: Successful Women Speak Differently: 9 Habits that Build Confidence, Courage, and Influence, the conversation ended up being about so much more. This podcast is about the difference in men and women in the workplace (and at home), an encouragement for those who get paralyzed by their fear of failure, and a reminder that what we say to ourselves matters.
