Ep 41: Give yourself permission to play with Next Level Improv Founder Julie Cotton

Julie Cotton is a multi-disciplinary integration specialist, edutainment infopreneur, facilitator of playful awakenings, improv maven, and Founder and CEO of Next Level Improv. She highlights the importance and power of play in our world in a fun, engaging manner.

Two things Julie shared truly stuck with me. The first is her compelling belief that there are actually no failures, but rather only variations and the second is a reminder that it’s essential for each of us to give ourselves permission to play.
