Have you ever wondered what it was like to walk a mile in the shoes of someone else? Beyoncè? Oprah? Bill Gates? Your neighbor? Or anyone who is living in your dream career, industry, or life? What is their story? What lessons have they learned along the way? What were their greatest challenges & mistakes? What is actually behind their highlight reel?
Truth is, we have all explored this idea, whether it’s getting lost in the latest novel, Instagram page, choosing a career or our next wellness routine. The good news is, if you’ve thought about this, you’re not alone and happen to be in the right place.
In The Soles Of… The Podcast is storytelling that meets at the intersection of motivation and the journey. Think of it as the brainchild of Socrates and Mother Goose. Your host, Shaniece Jones, steps into the soles of inspiring individuals sharing their stories and bringing you the lessons, tips, and motivation for YOU to blaze a trail vs. emulate one.
My hope is that this podcast will contribute to inclusion, build confidence, help you believe that you are #morethanenough, and bring about change in the world as we use the power of storytelling, the common thread that weaves us all together.
Your story matters!
