My second life began when I asked for my soul back from the Devil and left my career in the dust – the one that had become my identity – to start my own business.
I made a new pact, with myself, that my next chapter would be a lifestyle I would love living.
"Stories you don't tell can't sell" (Joseph Rooks)
That comment gave me great pause.
And so I reached out to Kevin and asked him if he'd be willing to flip the script and interview me. He said, 'yes!' (quite emphatically, I might add).
My personal opinion is that Kevin has missed his calling ;) He was an incredible interviewer. He made me comfortable, asked some really great questions and got me to open up on topics - some of which made me uncomfortable.
Question: Is this something you'd like to hear again on Lara Mcculloch . Start Some Shift?
