Part of my morning routine!

Love this podcast so much. Years ago I use to listen to 60 min podcasts and longer and as now I am a full time entrepreneur, I love that this podcast curates the best of the best in 20 min episodes. It’s perfect when I am getting ready in the morning. It’s a sweet invitation on a theme that supports our headspace. Love it so much.
