Special Episode: What Do You Believe In? (Part 2)

This week’s episode is part 2 of this special series on Beliefs.  I have been passionately working on this one over the past few months. 

As a refresher:  

The vision: To explore how our beliefs shape who we are by asking people, “What do you believe in?”

The process: I interviewed 8 different people in a one-on-one interview.  I asked the same series of questions to each person in the same order.  They did not know the questions or the theme of the interview before hand.  Therefore, the answers they shared were completely impromptu and from the heart. 

The result is beautiful, magical, insightful, and absolutely inspiring.  

I know I say this every week, but honestly, you will love this episode.
