Challenge accepted!

I am fortunate to know McKenna and Gregg personally, and was looking forward to this podcast. They are two highly productive people, but more importantly, they are genuinely good people! The first episode of this podcast is a fantastic representation of their willingness to share their vulnerabilities as individuals, a couple, parents, coaches, and community members, while at the same time, showing how they have built a strong foundation of strength and effective communication to overcome adversity in their lives. I encourage anyone that is open to guidance on how to handle both large and small difficulties and learn how to help others do the same to give a listen to these two, as I’m going to every week!
