Episode 74 Talk about Vetting Education

Have you ever wanted to be a fly in the wall in a room full of wedding industry educators? This week, I chat with my friend and fellow Educator, Kirsten Ott Paladino all about what it’s like to be an Educator. Meta? Sure. But if you know Kirsten, you know we are going to spill some tea and keep it real.

So grab a pen for this one – we are already spilling our tea – as we talk it out!
