Tune in as Martha will share how not telling a single lie for a year drastically altered her life, and how to know if you aren’t following your truth. We also chat about culture vs. nature and get into an emotional discussion about something I’ve been personally going through. And lastly, we’ll get Martha’s guidance on how to live our life with the utmost integrity and her alternative to a hustler’s mentality.
