What is your superpower? What makes you extraordinary? And how can you honor these things about yourself and take them to the next level? In today’s episode, I speak with the incredible Simone Knego - best-selling author, motivational speaker, mother of 6, (and climber of Mount Kilimanjaro!) - about the mindset it takes to achieve your dreams and the extraordinary things you are capable of when you accept that you don’t have to change who you are - you just have to change the way you see yourself!
