PODCAST: Dawson Wheeler And Clint Powell Interview Hollee Brock

Saturday, August 1, 2020

Dawson Wheeler and Clint Powell interviewed Hollee Brock.

She said, "I tend to problem solve like an inventor, ponder life like a philosopher, and express it like a poet.

"I have been the COO of Brock Inc, a living and loving enterprise where we help things grow, for almost 30 years.

I am proficient in ways that might be less visible in the typical metrics of achievements but are strong in the big picture of life. 

"I am walking into a new season of life so I decided to kick it off by walking a pilgrimage along the Camino de Santiago in Spain. I have followed that “boots on the ground” experience with the pilgrimage of writing about it."
