293: Goodbye Veggie Doctor Radio
In this final episode of Veggie Doctor Radio, I reflect on the changes and challenges I faced in 2023, including moving to a new office space and opening a multi-purpose teaching area. I share my experience of slipping into depression and making difficult decisions about my podcast. Despite feeling deflated, I surrendered to the universe and started believing in myself. Speaking at a conference reinvigorated me, and I decided to rebrand my podcast to explore deeper topics and promote well-being and joy. I introduce my new podcast, I AM HUMAN, and express gratitude to my listeners.Thank you for listening!
