One thing I know for sure is that we all have the strength to survive more than we ever think we can. In this podcast, I’ll be having heartfelt, courageous, and inspiring conversations, sharing stories about surviving those everyday things – the roadblocks that can trip us up and hold us back to from creating a life that we truly love. Sometimes an episode will be just me talking about what I’m learning, maybe what I’m listening to, watching, or reading - though mostly I’ll be chatting to others, having raw and honest dialogue with real and authentic people.
