How Laura defines empowerment:

What Laura and I talked about:
What was the last movie you saw?
12 Years A Slave
The EPIC Final Question: What is one tip, or one piece of advice you can give people who are just starting?
Just go for it. We all start making excuses for why we're not doing what we say we're going to do or what we want to do, and most of the time what we know we have to do. Most of the time it doesn't have to be all or nothing. Just start with baby steps. Always move forward. You will grow and you'll see things change.
