**A BONUS EPISODE in memory of grandmas and all grandparents who have transitioned.** On August 12, 2021, my paternal grandmother, Lucille Walker passed away. I had the honor of reciting an original poem at her homegoing services and I invite you to remember those you've loved and lost.
Less than 4 minutes long, my prayer is that one or two of the words bring a smile to you in memory of!

"Communication is a "how" we achieve great things in life. It is not an end in itself."

Damon and I talk everything from his excitement of opening, Nostalgia, a Black-owned wine and jazz lounge in Downtown Cincinnati during a pandemic, to communications in and outside of the corporate space, to even strategies that will help you avoid communication entanglements, whether now or years to come.
