As the host of the Podcast "RE-Focus with Angela Stephens" she juggles several companies at once in which she credits her amazing team. "Have you ever wondered how CEOs, Surgeons, Chief Scientific Officers have their game on when they face adversity? For instance, before performing surgery, presenting to a board, or flying a plane with passengers. They get that one phone call.... the one that gets us all frazzled... it’s about their kids, a lawsuit, losing a top employee...we would all lose FOCUS. So how do they get their game on? That is what I want to know & so do many others."
