    Being Our Best Self with Wendy Cole

    This week our guest is Wendy Cole
    Knowing from childhood she was a girl, Wendy yielded to familial and societal expectations to fit in. At age 67, Wendy changed her life with her transition. Beginning in January 2015 she focused internally: accepting who she really was, confronting fears, doubts, and anxieties that held her back for decades. She took the leap of faith to find freedom and joy in being herself. By July 2015, six months later, Wendy was living as a woman. She had her long-awaited surgery at NYU Medical in 2017. Wendy knows by focusing inwardly to find freedom and joy will benefit the rest of your life.

Profound and Insightful

I love listening to Kelly’s stories.

They are so relatable and simple, yet there are so many lessons and insights to gain from it. It makes you think about these moments in your own life.

I end up taking a good look at my own life and reflect.

You definitely want podcasts like these in your feed!

And the 12-13 min lengths are so easy to consume.

I don't want to nickname ,

I’m so excited about this podcast!

I’m already learning from Kelly’s intro episodes about how to be a better listener and how to share my own story.
I look forward to learning from all her interviews!
