Episode Highlights “We’ve been very open to not being afraid.” “Don’t get bogged down in the enormity of the entire issue. Just do something. Do anything.” “A lot of the changes that I’ve made in my life have less to do with being open, but being a lot more clear on being motivated by things that are true and real. My job isn’t going to be my identity.” Connect with Eddie: Eddiekaufholz.com Connect with Hilary on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. This episode is sponsored by Get Your Dream Off the Ground.
