Special Dedication To Kobe Bryant
I sit here writing this description trying to find the right words. This episode, I reflect on my favorite NBA player, Kobe Bryant. I never cried over someone I never met in person the way I did about his death. He would tell all of us to wipe the tears and get back to work. So of course in this episode, I had to discuss what I deemed his Breaking Through the Glass Ceiling moment. Let me know if you agree. To honor him, I did this special episode to discuss what he meant to me. I invite you to listen and share with me what he meant to you. Kobe would want us to have that mamba mentality and be the best at whatever we choose to do. That is what I plan to do. #Forever824 Apple: http://bit.ly/BGBW1AP   Spotify http://bit.ly/BGBWSP1   iHeart Radio http://bit.ly/BWPIHR   Google http://bit.ly/BGBWGP   Anchor http://bit.ly/BGBWAnchor
