Sooo I took a little break - but I'm back! I couldn't think of a better guest to return with other than Bonnie Milligan. I first learned about Bonnie when I stumbled upon some of her cabaret performances on YouTube years ago. That powerhouse belt? Obsessed. I was elated that she agreed to chat with me for the podcast. I barely talk in this episode because I was genuinely so eager to learn more about Bonnie and her inspiring journey. Enjoy friends!
