The Adversity Advantage with Doug Bopst

Aug 25, 2022

Today's guest is Allison Faulkner. Allison is a branding and events expert and host of the podcast “Awesome with Allison,” which is a top 100 health and wellness podcast. She's a consultant for fortune 500 companies, a writer, speaker, and self-proclaimed nonsense, dancer and CEO of “Allison's brand school,” where she partners with companies like Microsoft and Alaska airlines among others. She is also obsessed with her kids, husband, family, and friends, and the occasion for today's chat is her new book. “You're already awesome,” which I thoroughly enjoyed and I think you will too.
