Enjoying Life to It’s Fullest with Michele Mattia

Show date: Sep 23, 2013
Have you ever thought about what it would take for you to live your life to the fullest? To be balanced in both your spirit, mind and body? Michelle Mattia, once an owner of a successful technology-consulting firm, took time to think about the question "What would I do if I knew I could never fail?". That question lead her to become a best selling author, inspirational speaker, thought leader, life design coach, as well as a creative strategist. One of her main beliefs is that life should be viewed as a whole as well as it should be a balance between your body, mind, and spirit. Every moment of life's "dash," the period of time between when you are born and when you die, should be cherished and not taken for granted. --> Click the link below to LISTEN to this episode.
