Philadelphia's beloved White Dog Cafe founder Judy Wickes -- yes, that Judy Wickes! -- sits with Melanie and talks about almost everything.

Judy is an incredibly successful entrepreneur, author, speaker, and totally incredible example of what can happen when you follow your heart and sort-of accidentally end up changing the whole world.

Her memoir, "Good Morning, Beautiful Business," is the 2014 Gold Medal Winner of the Nautilus Book Award in Business. She describes it as "a love story, a business book, and a survival manual".

What an honor it was to sit with this world-changing woman.
