Exactly 10 years ago in 2012, I joined a class to help me write my one-person show, Stamp of Approval. René Peña, a former guest on this podcast, was also part of this class.
Kimleigh Smith, our amazing teacher in this class also played the roles of our producer, director, marketer, counsellor and so much more. To say we were grateful would be a huge understatement.
That's why it's so exciting to finally have her on the show in this episode, where she talked about her background, and what drove her to start the class, among other things.
Apart from being a one-person show coach, Kimleigh is also an actress, best-selling author, producer, Sexual Assault Awareness Speaker, philanthropist, and founder of Embrace Your Cape.
