Q: How did the Daily Grind become created?

A: I realized my story is unique and inspiring. With my outgoing personality and through interviews with colleagues, friends, and professionals across all industries and areas, I thought it would be interesting to share our ‘daily grind’ and what we do and how we achieve our goals by being efficient, productive and even finding time to fit in recording this podcast.
