After becoming a court advocate, she helped victims understand their rights and navigate the judicial system. She later became a teacher, an administrator, and a principal. In 2011, she started Prestique Academy, a school for twice-exceptional kids, all before leading her to where she is now as the founder of the BRA network. BRA stands for Business Relationship Alliance and is a network of powerful female entrepreneurs devoted to advancing women-owned businesses.

If not, it kind of comes off a little bit fake.
21:39 - I think it's for when you're struggling. And you can be vulnerable. You have a safe place to be like, I don't know what I'm doing. Or, I've decided to leave this and now I'm going to do this. But it's that feeling of being accepted and vulnerable.
