This is a fierce conversation if I've ever had one. I was recently on our guest, Emelia Symington Fedy's radio show and we essentially started our conversation there, then got into all the things we couldn't cover on her show in this chat because lucky for me, I don't have to answer to a producer! We talked about integrity in art, creation and self help, spiritual capitalism and commodification, "money stuff", and I'll tell you right now, you're going to love her answer to our signature, "What do you love about being a woman?" question! Enjoy and let me know what you think!
