DYTP Episode 13 | How to Take Control of Your Life and Your Local Community

Show Summary

Local control is one of those ideas we all support – but it isn’t just about government. As you’ll find out in Episode 13, local control starts with that person in the mirror. In the first half of the show, Ross speaks with Kati Whitledge about how she’s doing her thing in the beauty industry after taking control of her life. With just six little words, Kati transitioned from being a victim to a victor, and she shows you how to make that same move. In the second half of today’s show, Ross sits down with County Board Supervisor Mike Willett to identify five reasons why local control is awesome, and how it helps you do your thing in life.
