What the ish Podcast 

This podcast is all about the ish….those defining moments in life that led you to who you are today.

My ish’s guided me to create this podcast. I was happy(ish), fulfilled(ish), living on purpose(ish).  That realization was one of the many defining moments in my life…too many ish’s!  

Now I dig deep into my guest’s personal stories of how their defining moment (their ish) led them to – take greater risks, follow their dreams, make different choices, change course, reshuffle priorities….sometimes even in the midst of/or in spite of the most challenging moments of their life. 

We share our mutual stories and learn from one another. Conversations with people from all walks of life…like you and me. 

Please join us and let our stories inspire and empower you. At least that’s my hope.
