Episode 6: Christine Moseley, Founder and CEO
Christine's story epitomizes why I started this podcast. We chat a lot about mindset and building a meaningful career. She also shares the "rocking chair test" and how it pushed her to dive even deeper to risk it all. If you're in a job right now that is just kind of meh, give this one a good listen. I guarantee that you'll find meaning. If not, I'll give you a full refund:)

This is my first power couple interview and I chat with my friends, Pratima and Abhinav. It certainly has not always been easy for them, but their partnership is what makes it work. They share a lot with us, including tips on how they juggle two big careers, two young kids, and two people very much in love with each other, all under one roof. They keep in real. Amen.
