(Season Special)



November 17, 2021



We’ve spent the last year actively looking for the blessings in our lives. We never had to dig deep when it came to the Real Talk podcast! Every guest generously shared their unique genius with candor and vulnerability. The goal was to present diverse perspectives and actionable wisdom. And our intention was personal expansion for all. All of our guests understood the assignment.

Join us for a taste of our journey and a few sips of the delicious “tea” served up in Season Two. Then,  if you’re as serious about growing yourself, improving your relationships and supercharging your life as we are, we invite you to go back and drink from the full cup.  You are not going to want to miss a drop!
