F*ck the Bucket List!

F*ck the Bucket List!


Ayelet Baron is an old friend here on Mindful Social, and I'm honored she asked me to preview her latest book, the first in a trilogy, called F*ck the Bucket List For The Soul- Discover The Wonder Of You. Ayelet walked away from her corporate career to pursue her truth, to face her fears, and to create a life that challenges, fulfills and enriches not only her own life but that of others. As we face so many challenges this year, everything has changed in mere days, and now is such a perfect opportunity to take a good look at the hows, whys and why not in our lives and make a choice to see the opportunities we may have been blind to until now.  Listen up to hear more from Ayelet, and get the book! --- Support this podcast:
