How Words Can Shape Your Life w/ Stephanie James

How do you speak to yourself? Is it encouraging or damaging? What action can you take to make it positive?

I am beyond blessed to have spoken word poet Stephanie James from Just A Vessell Poetry joining me today. We are getting into why words matter, how your internal dialogue affects your entire wellbeing, how to make a living through your art, and settles life vs nomad life. All of this plus a friendly reminder for all my fellow travelers out there that you may need to hear right now so stay tuned until the very end. Thank you so much for taking the time to hang with me, so buckle up and enjoy my chat with Stephanie James.
