297: Behaving Boldly, Chasing Dreams, Pony’s & Fridays – Elise Russell

Sometimes you’ve got to chase your dreams, make a bold move, and focus on two things that you find make you happy. For some that might be eating pizza and going on vacation. For others it could be taking a stand for advocacy, or stepping out of a situation that no longer serves you. However, for today’s guest, it meant telling her traditional agency creative job to take a hike so she could cut-to-the-chase and start a motivational lifestyle brand called – Pony Friday.
