How Do-Over Days Give Us Another Chance at Our Best with Jacob Green (Episode #93)

If life seems to be serving you one complexity after another these days, then this conversation will feel like a gift. Jacob Green’s experiences, insights and stories transformed my way of thinking about “setbacks” and the opportunities hidden there.
