Genny has inspired audiences large and small with her authentic, engaging, and relatable style. “I’m passionate about encouraging and sharing with others because when we share our stories, we see that we aren’t alone. We aren’t the only ones who’ve longed for a dream to come true or started something from scratch. We aren’t the only ones who’ve struggled with something difficult or felt frustrated by parenting. Whether we’re talking about life, leadership, branding, or business, we’re all human, and we’re in this together.”
