On this week’s show, I talk with Army combat veteran and small business owner Jennifer Allain about the Affordable Care Act, what it was like to be a woman in the Army in the late 1990s, and how it feels when you get to represent your community at a Michelle Obama event.
This episode consists of excerpts from a two and a half hour conversation between Jennifer and I. I picked out a few of my favorite moments as well as moments that help you move your business forward - not only in terms of insurance, but also how to get out in your community and reach your clients.
Marked explicit for a couple of swear words.
