Welcome to Positively Selfish, with Robyn Lee from Freedom Nutrition.
My mission is to show you that IT IS OK (and positive!) to be more protective and selfish with your time and do more for yourself rather than just give and give and give your time to everyone else around you.
Once a week I take you away from the craziness of life.. for inspiring stories, awesome information and overall: empowerment. Every Wednesday I interview a guest who I admire for their mission, what they represent and who I know will inspire you to be more Positively Selfish.
Thank you for tuning in for your weekly dose of empowerment from Positively Selfish!
