A must listen every week

I’ve been listening to Live Free Creative for 2 or 3 years now and I have yet to be disappointed or even uninterested in an episode. Miranda’s positivity and zest for life is truly inspiring and her episodes always leave me with something new to think about and actionable takeaways. I can honestly say that this show has been the catalyst for many tweaks I’ve made in my life over the last few years. Thank you Miranda!
