Miss USA 2017 was this past Sunday – did you watch it? The women that compete in this pageant are so well prepared and extremely polished, so there is so much to learn from watching the Miss USA pageant. In today’s episode, I’m going to share with you the top lessons you could learn from this year’s pageant.

But first, I’d like to share some love that my client, Rita shared about her experience with the #1 Best Selling book Beauty Truth and Grace. She writes, “Alycia’s book is phenomenal! She breaks everything down so anyone can understand how to excel in pageantry. Her lessons are also connected to her podcast so you can get even more details on what she is talking about!”
