Episode 124: Today I talk to local artist & entrepreneur, Cass Bradley. It is so inspiring! She talks about she “escaped” a successful corporate career and made a very successful artistic career. She did it! She is a master at juggling many pursuits and passions simultaneously. [p.s. that obnoxious thud is from me dropping my phone. #sorry].
