GUEST

We interviewed a special guest Niki Koubourlis, Founder and CEO of @boldbetties. We listen to Niki as she takes us on her journey of her past and how she landed (on two feet) in Denver, Colorado and how she went from a high paying job in Dubai, unhappily married and unhealthy to starting up and being quite the Adventurer and turning that into a business. Bold Betties and their Adventure Community
