238 — Betsy Craig

Podcast Summary:

It was hard for me to interview Betsy. I have known her ever since I first interviewed her in July of 2015 on this podcast. We have stayed in touch since then and she was even a member of Trail Team 10. But, it was hard to interview her because I knew she was suffering through a life threatening disease and I worried how her recent treatment would work.

Betsy is a VERY strong person. Your can hear the determination in her voice while also sensing the compassion in her heart.

Listen through this entire interview. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. You will learn what she did to build her company so she could even take 3 months to save her life.

When you feel like you can’t go on…listen to this interview and you’ll be inspired by Betsy’s unstoppable spirit…the very word she used as the title of her new book.
