On today’s show we’re connecting with Kim Kuhteubl, the author of Branding + Interior Design. But when we say connect, we mean our minds were blown! We went deeper than just branding; we talked about developing our self-worth and defining our value for our clients. If we don’t show up as our true selves, we won’t attract our dream clients.
