Behind the Brilliance 42: Melinda Emerson


This is definitely one of my top 5 favorite interviews of Behind the Brilliance. My guest was the awesome (and surprisingly hilarious) Melinda Emerson. You probably know her as the Small Biz Lady (@smallbizlady) or as the author of Become Your Own Boss in 12 Months. What you don’t know is the remarkable story of how she earned a loyal following, launched multiple business, overcame tough setbacks, and embraced her calling as an expert and teacher.

Listen as we discuss race, business, relationships, persistence, and much more.
