Do you struggle with imposter syndrome and overwhelm on what book topic to pick to write about? You are not alone!

This is a replay of a really terrific group Zoom call that my biz bestie Allison Melody of the Food Heals empire did last Saturday. Six entrepreneurs joined us to ask questions, brainstorm, and work through mental blocks.
