The Tecla award nominated podcast, The Nancy Ruffin Show (formerly The Empowerment Hour), is a digital global classroom where individuals across all ages, backgrounds, and career levels tune in for guidance and motivation to live life on their own terms. It's where inspiring thought leaders, modern day influencers, and social game changers come to discuss their own personal journeys and have real conversations about the journey to success, what that means, and why it's different for everyone. Hosted by award winning author Nancy Ruffin, every week Nancy brings you raw and unfiltered discussions about the obstacles and challenges we encounter, the times we felt like giving up, and the things that keep us forging forward. The Empowerment Hour is where passion + purpose intersect. Subscribe. Listen. Share.
