Show Notes

If you thought being an opera singer and being in the corporate world are not related, I don't like to tell people they are wrong so what I will say is, you would be mistaken! In this episode, I am speaking with Kandice Whitaker, MBA who is the CEO of Alpha and Omega Consulting Inc. and host of the BAIL Yourself Out Happy Hour Podcast. Kandice has used her training as an opera singer to command attention when she steps in the room. And when she found herself battling racism in a prestigious college campus and then while working in corporate, she knew her faith would help her. And as she likes to say, "The Lord made a way".

Join Kandice and me as we MProperly speak about:
