Listen to this episode

Here we are, approaching the end of the year and a new beginning. It’s a great time to look at the way we make choices and the perspective with which we see ourselves and the world. In today’s show, we are looking at the concept of living significantly, and within that, the radical gift of struggle.

Signy Wilson is an electrifying and enthusiastic change-maker, entrepreneur, coach, and speaker. I met her recently, and we had lots of fun and felt immediate synergy. Signy is absolutely passionate about helping us to participate in life more fully. She demands that you choose to live fully, beginning immediately. She is proactive, action-oriented, and authentic. She’s going to call us forward to be our best selves and live our best lives, doing whatever it takes to wake up and give meaningful contribution to the world. In today’s conversation, we focus on how we as coaches live fully, as well as how we help our clients do that. We focus on one of her principles of significant living, the radical gift of struggle, and what that brings forth.
