DebTalksTV Episodes

DebTalksTV IconThe idea for DebTalksTV came when I realized that I needed inspiration. Lucky for me that came in the form of an amazing weekend in May 2014 when I was a participant in the Minerva Foundation’s Learning to Lead BC program. I felt so inspired being surrounded by 50 + amazing women, all with stories to tell. Being around them and hearing about their ‘successes’ and their ‘lessons’ in life, made me look at my own journey with a sense of empowerment. I want to create that for other women who feel they are struggling with success.
