I’ve just entered my 4th year of podcasting and I want to let you know how much I appreciate you spending time with me every week.

In today’s episode of The Launch Your Life Podcast, I want to share my story to help you understand where I’ve come from and how I’ve relaunched my life over and over as I’ve dealt with trauma, adversity, setbacks, and surprises.

Back in 2018, I wrote over 60,000 words of a memoir and I’ve just let it sit on my shelf all this time, but in this series, you get to hear it first.

I hope you can find some inspiration as we go through this together.

Thank you for tuning in!
