Today I am flying solo! Many of you have requested that I do more solo episodes, so today I will be discussing all things ADVERSITY. Overcoming adversity is always one of the most highly requested topics for the podcast. In today’s episode, I share with you nine things you must do when facing adversity so that you can use adversity to your advantage and become a better version of yourself after the challenging situation is behind you. These nine things will also become a valuable toolbox for the next time you face a hardship or obstacle in life. Remember, adversity is a muscle, and the more you work it healthily, the stronger it makes you!
