About the Karma Has Spoken Podcast
Danialle Karmanos is not a lady who lunches. She is obsessed with big-hearted, innovative thinkers — men and women who see obstacles as opportunities or carpe diem. And she loves talking to people who dare-to-dream and make it happen. Especially the ones who do it with camaraderie and kindness. That’s what the Karma Has Spoken podcast is about. Intimate conversations with dynamic leaders and innovators who went after their dreams and have made a big impact in their communities along the way. Danialle also digs into the lifestyle experiences we are dying to know more about or try ourselves.
