Podcast – Find Purpose in Your Past with Danette May

Today, I sit down with Danette May — world renowned motivational speaker, best-selling author, and former celebrity fitness trainer. I feel that Danette is a kindred spirit as we are both passionate about helping people achieve their happiest and healthiest lives. On this episode, you’ll hear us interview each other as we share our individual journeys while covering a wide range of topics, including: diet, fitness, nutrition, spirituality, family and purpose.
