In 2016, I launched a personal development podcast called Using Your Power with co-host Maveen Kaura and published 62 episodes. Listeners loved it because they got a better sense of my personality and philosophies away from the world of music entrepreneurship, where I’ve been the most prolific.

In this episode, Maveen and I discuss endorsements. We look at how endorsements work in a variety of contexts, and prompt listeners to think about how they’re tapping into the power of endorsement in their lives.
