How I came to start – PREP038

Two years ago, my husband asked what I wanted to do for Mother’s Day and I said I wanted to launch a Disney World website.

In this podcast, I talk about how I came to finally start this site after years of wanting to do it.


These are notes from this episode. There’s much more info included in the audio so be sure to listen to the episode for a better explanation.

Great podcast! Very inspirational. I feel like i've never really had a passion for any one thing and I really wish I could finally figure out what I want to be when I grow up. Perhaps I should look into getting a life coach. Ive never really thought about that but it seems like it could be really helpful.
