New Title + New Opportunity to Showcase Leaders

I gained a new title on February 24, that of digital host as my new podcast, Real Leaders with Roshini debuted online. They say everything you’ve done so far gets you to the present moment. And this endeavor definitely fits the bill. During my past life as a TV reporter and eventually a talk show host on TV, and then gaining my own radio show in 2012, I’ve interviewed thousands of people. Many of them leaders in one way or another. Others regular folks who did inspirational or extraordinary things. Intention and passion to showcase others drive these conversations. I hope you find inspiration in these weekly episodes. Look for the podcast on iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play, and I’m honored these leaders from a multitude of industries and pathways opened up, ready to share their journeys.
