Written Podcast Transcription:
Jacob: Hello everybody and welcome to The Enchanting Lawyer podcast. This is your host, Jacob Sapochnick. This is a show where we interview the most inspiring entrepreneurs, business people, and just creative individuals that inspire us to do our work better. Today I have a very cool and exciting guest, her name is Baya Voce.
As a cast member of MTV’s The Real World, Baya transformed her TV exposure into an abundant business and speaking career. She has founded three companies. Most recently Secret SLC based around being bold and building powerful relationships to leverage success.

Baya, welcome to the show. I’m so excited to have you here. How are you?

So I got fascinated with really this question, who am I being in order for people to be who they are towards me. I’ll say that one more time just because it’s kind of tricky. Who am I being in order for people to be who they are towards me. I just thought if I am being reacted to a certain way, there’s a reason. If more than one person is reacting to me in a certain way (audio cuts) to dissect what that was. Why I was either liked or not liked, trusted or not trusted. Why I would get boyfriends or not get boyfriends. That whole question really made me dive into my first company which was matchmaking.
So I was a matchmaker …
