047 The Gift of a Lifetime with Kerri Layto‪n‬ Focus on WHY

    • Entrepreneurship

What happens when as an international blues and jazz singer your voice suddenly produces robotic noises instead of talking normally? This is what happened to Kerri Layton as she shares her shocking story of how at the height of her singing career she was rushed straight in for an emergency operation on her vocal chords. Terrified, Kerri went into that hospital theatre not knowing whether she would ever sing again.
 
KEY TAKEAWAY
“The state of energy which has kept me open to possibilities was having a sense of play. I never lost that childlike sense of play.”
