    Building Deep, Loving Relationships that Last a Lifetime

    I look at loving relationships as one of the most important things we get to do as human beings, but it’s not something most of us were taught. We end up modeling the relationships we come from & there is so much room to grow in this area. If you truly want more rich, deep and intimate relationships, this is a must listen. When I decided to do this episode, I knew exactly who I wanted to reach out to on this topic. I’ve been following Annie for years & knew she would have incredible insights on this top

    Navigating Transitions in Life with David Lehmann

    I got to know David Lehmann through a friend of mine and really wanted to share his story. He’s had a successful marriage, raised three kids, done really well in business and today is an Angel Investor. He enjoys working with younger CEOs and founders. His story paints a picture of how to make decisions on important transitions in life including moving to a foreign country and dealing with a potentially fatal illness and provides a much richer lense to look through.

    The Strength of Surrender with Gary Mahler

    The Strength of Surrender with Gary Mahler

    I am thrilled to introduce Gary Mahler to you in this episode. I came across Gary on social media, by some intuitive pull. He’s lived in Paris, Japan, Hawaii, owned and sold a business and created his ideal life and now coaches others to do the same. He lives each day in such a centered and purpose driven way. He has some amazing things for you to consider. I would highly suggest having a notepad and taking some notes on this one.
