Shelby you rock!!

I love this podcast so much. I am a 22 year old female fresh out of college who has no idea what to do with her life. I currently work a 9-5 desk job and this podcast really gets me through it. It has encouraged me to explore different passions and keep grinding until I reach the place that I want to be. Shelby is such a good host and has picked so many cool people to share their stories.

Some serious inspiration!

This podcast is so great for inspiring big and little ideas/changes every day!

I would absolutely LOVE to hear an episode related to injury recovery and the mental blocks you have to overcome as an athlete/outdoor enthusiast while not being able to do the things you love.
