YOU WANNA DO WHAT?! is about exploring interests - about allowing ourselves to change, choose and try - whether it’s a lifestyle, hobby, fitness transformation, career change or a bucket list item. YOU WANNA DO WHAT?! gives ourselves permission to pursue our goals, dreams, and ‘always wanted to try’ items. It’s never too late to try reinvent yourself. Arrive curious and open-minded. A self-proclaimed “multipotentialiate” (just a fancy word for someone who has many, many interests), Monica has worked in Corporate America for over 15 years all the while pursuing interests around travel, writing, photography, fitness, hiking, psychology, business, and anything, FUN. Arrive curious and open to learn.

I'm all in!!!
With just 2 stories posted, and I'm already all in! Monica's candid view of her interests outside of work, reflect those passions that we may have had once, but never allowed ourselves to explore further. I'm guilty of this myself. So for me, this is a truly inspiring and motivating podcast and I can't wait to hear more!
This is something that we all wonder about every so often..."I want to do, see, try, etc, etc." This podcast is right up my alley as I find myself eagerly waiting to see what new topics Monica touches on next. Her great voice draws you in with both her personal experiences and with the information you need to go about it on your own. Subscribe and you won't be dissapointed!
Inspiration from a fellow New Yorker!!!
Give this girl a listen for a little inspiration to follow your dreams and achieve your goals!!!
