Episode Description

Sometimes people have to encounter a curve ball in life or an adversity for them to reset their life perspective and often times, it relates to how they treat Time.
Allow this curve ball to give you an opportunity to hit the reset button on your life and prioritize what's really important.
Host April admits herself, she was at one point just busy as an ‘alpha-mom’; doing and having it all instead of BEING who she was first, then doing and having.
In this episode, she invites her guest Carl Honoré who is an award-winning writer, broadcaster and TED speaker. He's been hailed by the Wall Street Journal, CBC Sunday and TEDTalk for his revolution of the Slow Movement. How can you thrive in a fast world with slowness?!
