Episode 1 kicks off with the who, the what, and the why from co-hosts Jenine Killian and Jessi Woinarowicz. We discuss why we decided to say yes to a podcast and moving forward with Glaze and Grit, a forum with a mission of sharing the real story behind people's success journey. We will share our journey - the highs along with the messiness, and a preview of what’s to come. In this episode, we embrace the imperfections of starting something new and the learning opportunities to continually do better. We smile, laugh, and cry with the stories in our own journeys and look forward to sharing our community's experiences and the vulnerability and authenticity that makes us who we are.
