Join me Monday, July 14th at 6 p.m. Pacific/9 Eastern on Radio Enso as we dip into the RE Archives. We'll be re-airing a great chat I had back in August 2013 with veteran radio host and journalist Tess Vigeland. Tess wowed the crowd at WDS in Portland, Oregon last summer with her keynote speech "What the Hell Are You Doing?! A Serious Stare Down the Barrel of an Ordinary Life", her vulnerable and real-life tale of giving up a sure thing for the chance to pursue a dream! We learned more about Tess' journey, what happened immediately after her speech, and how her brave talk about "figuring out Act Four" has already inspired so many!
