    Season 2 is here! Let’s talk about sustainability, honesty, & empathy.

    We are ready for season two with excitement, energy and a realignment of our intention; To inspire vulnerability along the path to sustainability. 

    During one of our check-ins, we felt it was time for a little break.  We didn't feel that we were in the right space to create this intention fully and be present for our listeners, or ourselves.  We were able to take some time to reflect and create new energy to get aligned on our intention again, and to make sure that we were still having fun! 

    Season 2 is going to be full of vulnerability, sustainability and empathy -- are you ready?
