The Life In Limbo podcast is about building a life you love on the foundation of what’s most important to you. Each week I chat with an interesting person or share my own ideas in order to explore about how we can stay connected to our personal values, measure what matters most to us, listen to our own voices, and create a life we enjoy.

This week on the podcast, I’m talking with my friend Ameema Saeed about why we both love reading so much, and what reading can teach us. I loved this conversation so much, since books and reading are one of my favourite topics and I believe we can learn so much from them. Ameema is smart and interesting and has a lot of important things to say about this topic, and it was so fun to chat with her.
