The RK3 Show - Navigating The Career of a Leader

In Case You Missed It

On last week’s episode, we had an award-winning speaker, coach, and trainer – our guest is all these and more. An entrepreneur who found his calling as someone who can help “energize” people; his advice ran the gamut – from business, personal, analytical, emotional. His ability is to transform and draw out the best from people. Find out more about Coach Kendall Ficklin’s story here.
