Many people think that someone with “intuition” is special or somehow mystical, but that is not true. Everyone has the ability to learn how to tap into their inner knowing, their “gut,” their intuition. Navigating the interior life and understanding what drives you and your decisions is the focus of the Turning Inward Podcast with Vivian Carrasco podcast. Vivian and I sat down for a few minutes and talked about how my life and business changed drastically for the better when I stopped overworking and started listening to my intuition, my inner knowing.
