In this episode, we meet Terri Trespicio, an award-winning writer, speaker, and brand-advisor. She’s a true powerhouse, having hosted a radio show, worked as a copywriter and magazine editor, and appeared on Good Morning America, The Today Show, and The Martha Stewart Show. We cover a lot of ground in this episode, talking about everything from the power of raising your hand, how to ensure you’re always moving in the right direction, and what Terri means by “the work.”

Terri has always been a writer and was awarded a MFA in poetry from Emerson College in Boston. She’s passionate about helping anyone who has something to share, and believes that paying close attention to the things you enjoy doing is the best gift you can give yourself. “Don’t worry about ‘How am I going to sell this? Who will pay for this?’” she says. “When you become very good at a skill you lose yourself in, there will be opportunities.”
