Subscribe to the Podcast!

Our lives don’t always turn out as we expected. 

With courage to explore personal development and the “why” around our behavior, expectations and struggles your life can turn out even better than you had hoped. 

As Ernest Hemingway said;

The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong at the broken places.

Whenever you put yourself out there in any way, no matter the setting, you open yourself up to judgment from others. So what do you do about it? How do you gain resilience during those tough times and what does resilience look like?
