May 26, 2023

Hey everybody. We're back! And I’m excited for everybody to meet Kelsy Bellah. She is the editor-in-chief of Comanche County Living Magazine. She wanted to interview me and I said, well, only if I can interview you.

And surprise, surprise, her story is brilliant, motivational, sad, and exciting. We talk about the challenge of running a magazine in a social-media era — and a lot more.
