IAM1681 – Founder Empowers Business Creatives Who Seek To Impact Humanity and Mankind

Podcast interview with Akia Hardnett

Why it was selected for “CBNation Architects”: Akia talked about purpose during this interview and especially how it goes beyond the “papers” and the things that have to be done within the business.  This was recorded during the actual conference so it was great to hear her mission and purpose for the organization but even more to see how it manifested during the conference. She also talked about how she co-created with God (God being the CEO) and even her CEO Hack being “Googling and Pray”
