So, I’ve got something new for you this week! Maybe you’ve been listening to Beyond Influential for a while, or maybe you just started tuning in, but I’m putting a new twist on it for this week’s episode.

Introducing Beyond Influential (BI) Unfiltered! I’ll be sharing more about what Unfiltered is and my vision for it in this episode. However, the quick and dirty explanation is that I wanted a vehicle to share off-the-cuff commentary on a variety of topics that have caught my attention recently. It includes current events to relevant trends and more. Also, joining me today for this candid conversation is Shannon O’Donovan, tech wizard and second in command in my business, who you may remember from Ep. 99 Behind the Scenes of My Business: Team-Building, Finding Your Zone of Genius & Leaning Into Change

And something extra special… this whole episode is on video, so you can actually watch it below!

Additionally, I’ve included topic timestamps for you. So, in case you want to jump to a certain talking point. You can find links to the articles and images we reference below the video.

So, as Unfiltered evolves, I’d love to hear your feedback. Like, subscribe, and leave a comment on YouTube! Any topics you’d like my take on? Shoot an email to my team at and let us know!
