A Monthly Podcast About Breaking Through

You see yourself as an average or below average person who’s in a slump, struggling and unsuccessful in dealing with your obstacles. You see what appear to be successful people and you feel like there’s a huge gap between you and the successful people you see in terms of how they’ve grown and overcome their obstacles, realized their opportunities, or got lucky.

We will explore all the pieces that make the whole person, without judgement, to learn from each other’s lived experiences and draw on the commonality that is our shared humanity. 

Join us on a monthly podcast journey to learn how you can break through like others just like you.
