About This Show
Here's the story they don't tell you. There are no "meteoric rises" to the top. There are no "overnight sensations." Everyone has struggles and challenges they have to overcome. The purpose of this podcast is to shed light on the parts of our stories that we don't tell-- to show everyone that transformation is possible if we work for it. This is the place to demystify the whole idea of transforming your life and defining success on your own terms. Here you'll hear stories to ignite your heart, renew your spirit, and equip you to chase your dreams, knowing that you are not alone.

And that would be a shame, because it’s actually one of the most vital. So, without any further ado, I give you... my five reasons to "star
