Barbara Jackson on Bringing People Together (To Make Change Together)

Another international guest? YOU KNOW IT!
Barbara and Ilma
Today’s guest – #28 – is Barbara Jackson who lives in … SWEDEN!

Barbara and I connected through Twitter thanks to a Dorie Clark tweet. Dorie introduced me to past guest (#3), Tim McDonald, who has introduced me to a boatload of past Living Your Passion guests.

Barbara sent me a super-detailed email about how she uncovered her passion and I just had to have her on the show!

Ready to be blown away? See that picture of Barbara in this post? Standing next to her is past Living Your Passion guest (#22) Ilma Nausedaite … who she met up with in Lithuania a few days after we recorded this interview. Small world, huh?
