The ultimate space for 1st/2nd Gen empowerment!

So honored to be part of the Living Bravely fam, and always carrying the wisdom, love, and empowerment I gained from Nicoles incredible life coaching program! It’s amazing to be able to continue learning from her wisdom and the inspiring stories of other 1st/2nd gen folks and their life transformations through this podcast. Also, the intro music is hella smooth, hehe! You got a life long listener here, keep on shining Nicole!❤️ -Janelle
