Stop Trading Your Dreams for Comfort - Real Talk w/Guest Melissa Sheets
Show Notes

"The people who are closest to you are often incredibly uncomfortable with your reinvention."

Whew....isn't that the truth.  Melissa Sheets, Photographer & Creative Specialist at shares how she made tough but thoughtful decisions leading to a life she could only imagine.  After returning from Haiti, she found seclusion on a local farm that provided her time to reflect on her marriage and career.  The clarity that she gained, gave her the confidence to explore the next best version of herself as a mom, partner, entrepreneur and world citizen.

It can be hard for the people around you to accept the idea that you are in a season of growth and change.  The challenge is to take care of yourself and love people along the way without taking your eye off your destination.
