Today’s episode is with Chantal Cox, a special educator, author, podcaster and transformation coach who uses her 3 part framework along with the power of the NeuroCoaching Model(™) to help motivated, high-achievers rediscover their passion and purpose in life so that they can rise up, step into their full potential, and successfully navigate their journey to Create a Life You Love.
