    The Power of Storytelling - Episode 34

    Welcome back to The Power of Storytelling!
    Maghan, Mayuko and Victoria - thank you for sharing your stories, your words, and your journey with all of us.
    This week’s episode reminded me that we arrive at our work, businesses we build, creations we create, through following our joy, passions and inspiration. That journey isn’t always easy, and it’s often in the moments of difficulty, sickness, confusion, and setbacks that we find our true purpose, our true joy, and our true mission to share with the world. Trust the timing of your setbacks, trust the timing of your growth, and trust the timing of your joy.
    It’s truly my honor to share the stories and provide the space here to share a little bit more about the women behind these words. I encourage you to check out Maghan, Mayuko and Victoria after you listen to this week’s new episode.
