yep

This podcast rules. And I typically find it hard to connect to podcasts. It feels really genuine and intentional. Finding out Shaun is also In recovery was really helpful !

This Podcast Is What You Need

Shaun has been monumental in my recovery. I have always looked to others for support and advice and listening to his advice and experiences have been so helpful in my journey to become a better person to myself, my family and my child. Have I had the same experience in life as Shaun? No. Have my experiences been similar. Yes. And by listening and learning to his thoughts and perspective it has helped me understand my own thoughts and perspective. To begin to ask myself the important questions, to be mindful and aware of my thoughts, emotions and actions. I have a troubled past but my future is brighter because of The Love Drive. It is one of many tools I use to help me pave the path to a better life. Thank you for your work and dedication to making a difference in people’s lives. Please listen and share the wisdom. Every person on earth has a purpose. Shaun’s is to help.
