They say referrals are one of the greatest forms of compliment and I am incredibly grateful this week that one of our former guests, Jonathan Troen introduced me to this week's guest, Ellie Shoja. Jonathan was my guest in DTH Episode 59 talking about his movement, Self-Love Revolution. Ellie is another of so many great guests that I have been honored to have on the podcast lately speaking about her journey from trauma to triumph.
