the founder and owner of Brave Bear Media. She is an author, coach, consultant, speaker and Reiki Master amongst many other gifts and talents. She is committed to helping lone entrepreneurs speak up, stand out, and change the world.

In this episode we talk about how Berni redefined success for herself through first unlearning what she already knew, ways you can measure your impact that are just as effective and necessary as tracking your income and the methods for self-care that she uses in order to sustain her work.
