I hold a vision for a world where we have enough (food, shelter, clothing, clean air, clean soil, clean water, love). To get there, we need to embrace kindness and love, now, assuming good intent while protecting our necessary boundaries. And, we will laugh all the way there.
This podcast is where I can share that vision and explore the stories of other people who also share that vision.

Thank you to everyone who responded to my call for guests for season 3. Season 3 will be an exploration of “non-linear paths to finding your purpose”. Stay tuned for more!
In Season 4, I will be focusing on your identity, how you wear it, how you found it, the ups and downs of owning your identity.
Please also screen yourself with my four qualifying questions:

- Do you have something you are working on that you are passionate about? Maybe it’s your career? Maybe it’s a hobby or a passion project? (required)
- Are you a womxn?
- Are you a mother?
If you said, “YES,” to the first two, I want to hear your story. If you said, “YES,” to all four, I want to know how you do your identity story and how you live it!
