As Alissa has said time and again, we’re all perfectly lopsided puzzle pieces, a part of this larger puzzle, or threads in the larger tapestry. We have just relaunched this show and what better and more-fitting episode to start with than to invite Kari Romeo as our opening guest because she is everything that this show embodies. Kari is no stranger to limiting beliefs, fears, and self-doubt. Before all the success, she’s dealt and struggled with insecurities—much like we all do. Today’s episode is truly inspirational and a real testament that what you believe, manifests. I hope that by the end of this episode, you find the power to reframe your thoughts and experience the beautiful transformation that Kari and myself had the opportunity to, and together, let’s claim our successes.
