Across this series you will hear conversations with YouTubers, Pop Stars, TV Personalities and yes, of course, even a few family members on manifesting to mindest, heartbreaking injuries to major comebacks, the challenges of ‘fame’ right through to huge opportunities that can be hidden in tough moments.
Amy will talking to a different celebrity guest every week asking questions they may have never been asked and sharing the things no one would usually think to discuss to enable listeners to get to know these famous faces for their authentic selves rather than what you see on television / social media / in the papers the whole time; which is only a snippet of their lives.

This show has been created to motivate by sharing the real story behind celebrity journeys in order to inspire listeners to follow and chase their dreams, knowing that - based on the tales told on ‘Tapping In With…’ - ANYTHING truly is possible!
