What is your soul story?
The collection of life experiences that have shaped you, the challenges that have brought you to a place of self-awareness… Those moments form the personal narrative that sets you apart. And if you want to make a true impact in the world, you must learn to articulate your soul story and share it, inspiring other people and moving them to action.

She explains the personal development work she did to foster self-awareness, face her own fear of vulnerability, and forgive the people in her past—as well as herself. Listen in as Peek offers insight around getting clear on the guts of your own soul story and sharing your unique vision with the world.
