Living your Journey
Felt like I was sitting in on the converation. Very inspirational! Thoughts and challenges through life that helps us all through our own lifes journeys, moving us on our own paths.
People are the key!
It's not everyday that a story comes along that reminds us of the strength and power of the human connection.
The host Christopher Swan does a wonderful job interacting with Alex Babajayan and really delving into what shaped and molded him into the artist and teacher he has become today.
In a world that at times is so disconnected by technology it's refreshing to hear how Alex's journey was guided by the people who came into his life.
It's a story that is transcendent and reminds us that sometimes even when we can't see what's next, it just takes that one person to plant a seed that grows the most glorious garden.
So motivational. Hearing how passionate guest Alex is about his career path is very inspiring. Host Christopher Swans personality shines through the mic. Its like over hearing a great conversations between friends.
