I Need Your Suggestions! What Would You Do on a Personal Retreat?

Hey multipod friends! I made a video for you today (with help from Gorse). Sorry about the phone noises in the middle. I was going to re-record the video but then I thought, why edit reality?

How to Find Your Purpose When What You Do…Is “Everything”?

How to Find Your Purpose When What You Do…Is “Everything”?

Hey guys, it’s Emilie. A quick note before we get on with today’s fantastic guest post.
