Going above and beyond

The Breaking the Barrier podcast explores how we can all go above and beyond what we ever thought possible. Andrew Lorenzo shares his own personal journey with candid honesty and celebrates the achievements of his listeners with the hope of creating a community who will inspire and motivate each other along their own personal journeys. Through listening to this podcast and interacting with other listeners I have been inspired to take up a new and difficult challenge, which previously I had never had the confidence to try. I’m sure many other BTB listeners have been similarly inspired.

Thank you Andrew for helping us all go above and beyond :)
