Great inspiration

Love!! My new go-to podcast to listen to while I get ready for the day. Clay and Michelle are very positive and provide amazing messages by incorporating interviews with those who show how to work hard in life, be kind, and give back to others and it will be reciprocated. It’s refreshing to listen to stories on how to constantly work on yourself and how we can always improve all around and continue to be good to others.
