If there’s one thing we’ve taken away from the past weekend’s sad events in Charlottesville, it’s the need to continue to call it like we see it ? whether that “it” is racism, bigotry, sexism, terrorism, or any targeted attack on a certain group of people.
We’ve all got eyes, hearts, and lives of our own. And they can’t tell us what we are seeing, feeling and experiencing isn’t real.
On today’s show, we also discuss the importance of being your own self advocate in your life and especially in your career ? even if it feels like the most uncomfortable thing in the world.
Thank you for your continued support! Please leave us a review on iTunes to let us know how you feel about the show.

Welcome back, BA Fam!
On today’s show, we swap medical billing nightmares and take a question from listener Latoya who says she was pursued for a medical debt she didn’t owe. We offer tips on how to fight back when debts appear on your credit report that you know you don’t owe, and share how Latoya was able to resolve her own medical billing nightmare.
As mentioned on the show, here’s a link to https://clearhealthcosts.com/, where you can compare prices for many medical procedures in different ZIP codes.
