The HARD Truth: from the mouth of a REAL Female Comedian - Elaine Williams

[spp-player url=”″]

Hi Winners,
As many of you know I have been taking a 6 week class on learning Stand Up-Comedy.  WHY? Well, Because is SCARES ME! So, I reached out to my network to see if I could interview a female comedian.  I wanted to learn how they got started, WHY did they get started, and what were some of the SECRETS of Comedy!  Elaine Williams was amazing in this interview, she opened up her heart and just SHARED her personal story and how she now uses comedy to talk about dark and sometimes emotional subjects to help college kids and her students.
This is truly one of my favorite episodes for the year!  So many life lessons in stepping out into the SPOTLIGHT and being WILLING to get REJECTED!
Be You! Be Real! Be the Boss of YOUR LIFE!
