PP 428: Amy Lyle, Author

“I am a student of the world, I love learning new things.”

An entertainment lawyer once told Amy that she is nothing, a nobody, and has no money to make it in the entertainment industry. His free advice to her was to write about what she knows, create a blog, a book, and get out there. Now she is an author of a best seller “Book of Failures”, appears on a local talk show, has been filmed in a movie, and Amy’s own film is now in development. Listen in as Kim and Amy have a light hearted conversation about failures, how kids can be a handful, and their advice on embracing your heritage!
