Everyone would be much better off if they listened to this podcast. Thank you for all your hard work!
After hearing Laurence Tam on a recent Life by Design podcast, I decided to finally check out this one. WOW! Awesome-I'lve listened to about 6 in the last 3 days, and love them all. Keep up the amazing work:)
new listener - can't wait to catch up!
I have enjoyed all the over 20 podcasts I have listened to thus far. I was AMAZED to get a response to a Facebook question I asked :) I really value the fact that they have three different view points - it's not just one message but a compilation of information from you which you can pick what works best for you. I think the content is valuable and presented in an engaging way. I do enjoy the Canalian point of view - being a Canalian myself!
Thank you hope you all find success and keep the wellness message spreading.
