Interview with Jared Falk of Drumeo

Last month I launched a new web series on YouTube. I am yet to give it an official name, because I am not completely sure what to call it. It is already looking like it will have several themes and feature a variety of people who I will interview and have candid discussions with during a live broadcast.

I was pleased to have Jared Falk of Drumeo as my first guest.

No pretense, no bull shit (pardon the French), just mutual respect and support.. Randomly, she also shares the same birthday as my BFF Cheryl Howe.
