Listeners, it is Naomi’s story of strength in leadership and motherhood inspired me one year ago this month when I first learned of it, so much so that I wrote a blog post about her in July, titled “In AWE of Naomi Harm” This podcast and my business was not even a thought at that time, and when the title came my way in solitude, so did that blog post! Since then, my connection with Naomi has deepened, and I am so grateful for her influence in our world. It is a true tender honor to share with you Naomi Harm’s Independence story.
