    Live your heart out: sharing the best advice from Season 1

    Live your heart out: sharing the best advice from Season 1

    What a ride! 1-year ago I wanted to share the inspiring stories of people I knew who decided to live a life according to their personal rules and standards. Through their stories, I can believe that everything is possible and that people will find a way to accomplish what their heart desires. A year ago, I wanted to do this in the best way I knew how and in a way that respected my guest's stories and allowed them to author their own tales to each person who listened, and so, @the mad chatter podcast was born. To celebrate the end of Season 1, I took my favourite key learnings and put them together for you. I hope there is some wisdom that resonates with you. 



    To everyone who has listened to any moment of these episodes, thank you. Thanks for taking the journey with us, I look forward to what stories Season 2 brings.
