I learned that Vicki is a big fan of The Beatles and George Martin, which endeared her to me right away. She also scored points with me for giving me permission to take a day off for the Thanksgiving holiday, a pause for this podcast. She tells me that giving permission is something she often does as a coach. I was and still am grateful for her gift of permission.
