Backstory Behind Stephanie and Guest
“I met Brian at Wingman Media when I was doing some consulting work for them. That work took us on one of the most bizarre sales calls in my career. I sat next to Brian on the plane going to that meeting and proceeded to have one the best and most meaningful conversation of my life. I can’t remember all the topics we talked about but I do remember feeling an inspired sense of connection after talking with him. I believe this is because Brian is a great listening and he takes time to thoughtfully shares what he knows with an awareness to the art of great conversation.” – Stephanie Michele
