Everyone has their own unique story and Briana speaks to individuals at different points in their journey. From professionals who love their day jobs to dreamers paying their dues to reach a lifelong ambition - come to commiserate and stay to be entertained or inspired. Of course, no conversation would be complete without some tea spilt about crazy on-the-job experiences.
