Why Am I Melissa Fortunato

Hey everybody, I’m Greg Sowell and this is Why Am I, a podcast where I talk to interesting people and try to trace a path to where they find themselves today. My guest this go around is Melissa Fortunato(for to naught o). How did this shy anxious kid grow up to be an FBI hostage negotiator…by saying yes. She has had a quite interesting journey from working in a crisis center, to FBI undercover work, then hostage negotiator, and now she uses those honed skills to help folks from all walks of life to communicate and negotiate more empathetically. She’s a pretty awesome human, and one you should definitely meet if you get the chance. I hope you enjoy this conversation with Melissa.
