Life is Happening FOR you, Not TO You with Guest L.Y. Marlow

Ep: 126

The events that take place in our lives happen in order to teach us something, and when we possess the courage to surrender to life’s lessons, we gain valuable wisdom that directs us towards our purpose. Life is actually happening for us, rather than to us.

Marlow is an award-winning author, sought-after empowerment advocate, and influencer whose life journey took her from a legacy of domestic violence to the opulence of corporate America.  Today, she leads a life devoted to inspiring other women to embrace the lessons life offers and use that wisdom to pay it forward.
