My Thoughts: Talk about her past, her work as a life coach, life, relationships, changing your life, and a little bit of politics near the beginning. Joe talks a lot about himself during the last half hour. Talk about work and following your creative passions. I’m sure many people will find this to be an inspirational podcast. A nice change of pace from hunting, animals, fighting, politics, etc.
