Tiffany Boone could very easily have become just another statistic. Raised by a single mother in Baltimore after her father was killed, she drew inspiration from her mother’s no-excuses mindset and incredible hard work. So instead of becoming a statistic, she became a successful actress and a role model. On this episode of Women of Impact with Lisa Bilyeu, Tiffany Boone shares her story, and she goes into great detail on the struggles she faced with mental health, her difficulties on a show that seemed like the opportunity of a lifetime, and her eventual triumph. Tiffany and Lisa also discuss building confidence, the connections between blessings and karma, and why nothing is more important than integrity.
