Most of the 250+ interviewees I’ve had on the podcast have arrived at this work via a winding, zig zag path.
The paths are oftentimes defined by hills-and-valleys, carved, and etched, blocked by boulders and pelted with sandstorms, and as with many of our own journeys, littered with their fair share of moments they’d rather forget.
Add to these experiences a hard-fought self awareness coupled with an indescribable pull to help heal those who’ve been traumatized, and you have what describes many of my incredible podcast guests.
My guest this week Janae Weinhold, fits this bill to a T, and it’s what makes her so inspiring.
