I’m on a MISSION to inspire one MILLION people to take the RISK they’ve always DREAMED of.
When we were little, we would always take risks and dream big, we’d do what brought us so much joy, but somewhere along the way we lost that part of ourselves. But it’s never lost. It’s STILL in us. 🙂 So I’ve gathered big dreamers and massive risktakers to share their stories of mountain top moments and also the moments of pain and failure, to encourage us to remember how amazing we are and that it’s never too late to achieve these big dreams in our hearts. Stories make us childlike. Stories remind us of who we are.
I hope this podcast inspires and encourages you to realise how brave and uniquely special you are, and that YOU have something beautiful to bring this world. Here’s to you and all the brave and courageous souls! I’m counting these risks so tag #1millionrisks and email me your risk HERE so I can add it to our official Risk List.
So much love to you 🙂 Nat xx
