In this epsiode I have an enriching conversation with Lucy Mayes and Ingrid Gaiotto.

Lucy: A mother with two young adult children who is transitioning into a new phase of life. She has a background in law but left her law career due to a values disconnect and pursued a career in workplace wellbeing, with a particular focus on healthcare.

Ingrid: With a background in Italian heritage and a passion for the arts, hospitality, and travel, has embarked on various ventures, including running a cafe and now a tour operations company. She maintains a deep connection to her Italian roots and channels her skills and passions into creating businesses aligned with her values.

Lucy and Ingrid have joined forces for this special episode to discuss their shared passion for personal development, authenticity, and making a positive impact in the world.They also excitedly reveal an upcoming Italy retreat that they are partnering on, promising a transformative and enriching experience for participants.

Enough is enough:
