Staying motivated in Guam

I was a student of Jen’s from NYC and now I live in Guam (Navy). Being buried in a military lifestyle and community (one I never thought I’d be a part of- I’m Theatre peeps), it’s hard to find kindred spirits. Priorities, mindsets and the ways people move through life is very different. Now, add the island lifestyle on top of that. This podcast has helped me feel connected with my NY Creative community, kept my mind fresh, stimulated and growing and hearing Jen and Pete talk about anything is comforting and goes perfect with my morning coffee. Love you guys!

Love listening to your conversations!

Peter and Jen, listened to several of your episodes and love how relevant they are to our lives. You make me pause and rethink some concepts that I've been holding on to maybe a bit too tightly. Thank you for sharing these! Looking forward to the future episodes!
