Intro to Walking The RedPath
28:40Welcome to the first of many RedPath Radio podcasts! In this episode, I speak about overcoming our vices and letting go of what is holding us down, because sometimes in order to move forward and take that first step in the right direction, we must overcome our fear and let go of the things that are holding us down, so we can make room for something so much better to fill its place. In this episode, I mention; - Steven Pressfield, the author of 'The War of Art', - Actress, Jinjara Mitchell, and - Elizabeth Gilbert, the author of 'Big Magic'. Thanks for listening!
