Episode 22: Josh Davis on Saying Yes To Your Dreams


Josh Davis is a TV producer who has worked on “What Would You Do?” and “Rossen Reports” on the Today Show. He joins me on the show to talk about how his role, and how following his dreams as young boy in a very small town has led him to where he is today. I think you’ll love his outlook on life and his positive attitude. I loved getting to talk to him about what goes on behind the scenes of creating a television show, and of course, loved hearing about his French Bulldog, Jolene.
