MOTM #100: Dear Her – Advice for Every Girl from Extraordinary Women with Leslie Trujillo

Monday, March 18th, 2019

One. Hundred. Episodes. Holy smokes. How does one celebrate something like this? By bringing on a guest who is truly living the message of this podcast. Duh. Join me for a very special episode, with a very special guest, as we discuss a very special book that I truly believe every young female needs to own.

You guys know me. I'm not hear to blow smoke or promote things just for the hell of it. If I'm preaching about it, it's because I truly believe it in, and truly believe that it will help you in some way, shape, or form. Dear Her is a compilation of letters written by extraordinary women, to their younger selves. Words of encouragement, words of wisdom, words of hope. Words that I wish I could have read as a young athlete, and now, words that every young female can read.

So come celebrate 100 episodes with me, and listen to a woman who found her passion, saw the bigger picture, and now wants to help you discover how movement unites us all. Thank you for joining me on this wild ride. Here's to 100 more.
