Ep65 - Words That Transform

"Words have power. What you say, you create." - Alicia Dunams

One of the guests in a podcast I hosted way back 2014, Alicia Dunams is a good friend and has an amazing way with words. She's a bestselling author who has written numerous books and, for the past 10 years, has been helping others write their own bestseller!

She works with busy leaders and aspiring authors who want to birth a bestseller in a weekend. She's a big believer in communication, storytelling, and the power of words. Learn how you can harness the power of words to transform lives in Episode 65 of The RK3 Show!
