When I set out to write The Influential Voice, I knew it was my chance to gift you the resources you need to amplify your voice on and off of the stage.

Stories were out there that the world desperately needed to hear, and it is my mission to amplify them.

I couldn’t change any of this in the world, but I could create a tool to help us all influence and change our corners of it.
