Amazing

I really enjoyed listening to this podcast. Kay has a voice of an angel and it always sounds like your just hanging out and talking story with great friends. I live for change and being able to do things that makes me feel alive. I moved my family from Maui to New York City for a life change. Now we are working on a new business to be able to move overseas for the next adventure. So keep the inspiration coming.
