Episode 116: Big Mo
Remember the caller who didn't leave any contact info on the 100th episode? Well she heard the call to action, hit me up and here we are! Meet Big Mo, a woman in the midst of a spiritual awakening, who one day looked around and realized the companies she had been involved with may have been more harm than good. As a woman with autism Mo faces a lot discrimination about her disability, so when a flashy couple with the FOMO lifestyle she wanted promised they would help her every step of the way be as successful as them, she jumped at the "once in a lifetime opportunity" before ever checking for the safety net.
