Love It!

Something Positive

There is a lot of negativity in the world, and negative people who don't want to see someone try and/or succeed - for various reasons. This podcast is great because its a place to listen to stories of people who have moved forward anyway, no matter what the naysayers are saying. Sometimes its hard to believe in ourselves, but when you hear about others who took chances and made it - it helps a lot.
