In this show, you will learn how Tamilee became her own agent, negotiated on her own behalf, and spread her message of wellness throughout the world. From Mambos to Menopause we discuss it all and along the way find that we both have a lot in common, including the fact we were both out of the house and on our own studying or working at the age of 16.
