And during the difficult times everyone is currently facing, her insights and advice are more valuable than ever. On this episode of Women of Impact with Lisa Bilyeu, Kelley Earnhardt Miller discusses managing emotions in times of fear and uncertainty, explains how she balances running a juggernaut of a business with the needs of her family, and talks about why it’s so important to make other people feel like they matter.
