Strained family dynamics are something a lot of us will experience at different periods in our life, to varying degrees or intensity. If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I’ve had a difficult relationship with my mother and biological father. When Al and I sat down to hit record on episode 22: Rip It Life: Building Your Dream Career & Still Enjoy Life with Al Goldman a very different conversation unfolded naturally that I had to hit record on.

Al and I talk about our journey’s with our own mothers, from our upbringings, to abuse, to finding a spiritual path.
