Extraordinary

I love Blaxit Global! I came across this podcast while in the pre-departure phase of my journey. After listening to the first episode I felt encouraged and motivated. I binged all of the episodes. I’d listen in the car, while washing the dishes and packing up my apartment. It gave me that extra push and confirmation that I was making the right choice.

You will hear amazing stories from guest of all ages, backgrounds and professions. I’m grateful for the necessary and wonderful work that Chrishan Wright and the Blaxit Global community are doing.
