Join Living Your Best Life with Genma Holmes and Mocha Market Magazine during April as we spotlight out of the box thinkers who are change agents. From serial entrepreneurs who will not allow the word “no” be a stumbling block on the road to success to leaders of organizations who challenge the status quo by leading by example to military men and women who are taking their military training that helped rebuild foreign countries and now applying their skills in their communities to photographers who allow their lens to tell stories about individuals and culture that inspire us to appreciate the beauty in all people. Tune in to hear best practices, how they became overcomers, and how they turned missteps into opportunities.
