On this episode, I had the great privilege of interviewing published author, Kathy Murray. Like myself, Kathy is a Black woman who left the corporate world and embarked on an expat lifestyle solo. She chronicles her experiences in her novel, The Munich Cowboys Cheerleaders.
I really enjoyed unpacking the life of a trailblazer with extremely rich experiences, while also acknowledging that there are still so many adventures that she looks forward to. #FreeBlackGirlEnergy
