A Note from psychotherapist Kara Kihm, host, Discovering My Wings Show on the Inkandescent Radio Network — Hello, and welcome to today’s episode of Discovering My Wings. As you know, I’m the author of the book about how my life profoundly transformed when I began listening to my intuition. This show is designed to help you do the same.
Today’s guest: Raj Aggarwal is the founder of the communications firm Provoc — a minority-owned, certified B Corporation since 2008, Provoc meets comprehensive, transparent social and environmental standards in an effort to use the power of business as a force for good. We root our work in an ever-deepening equity lens, collaborating with clients and partners who believe in social, economic, and racial justice.
