I love leadership, laughs (and yes) libations.  I also love learning.  Although I've been in leadership roles for over 30 years, I love talking to leaders that are in the trenches and learning what works, what doesn't and what I can do differently.

This podcast is for everyone out there that is working to lead better, get more done and leave a legacy.  Leading others is a deliberative act and we can always get better.

Pop yourself open a cold one, sit back and enjoy!

Have you ever walked into the grocery store, looked around and gotten confused by all of the different options?  What does organic and non-gmo actually mean?  This week on Leadership Happy Hour I talk to THE EXPERT, Michele Payn, to debunk the myths out there and bring some clarity to what you're buying when you're at the store.  Some people lead people and others lead causes.  Michele leads the cause to help you make the right decisions and connect you to your food in today's noisy world.
