“When you find the strength to help others, you have the strength to help yourself.”

“If we seek to truly see each other, face our obstacles, and grow our connections from a place of sincerity, empathy, and acknowledgment of others; what we create, and the impact we leave, will have long-lasting reach and effect.”

The Podcast

Based on life found experiences and interviews of diverse strangers, Richard’s short stories and observations entertain as they share ideas for appreciating the worth of yourself and others. Real-life stories and openhearted dialogues that can enhance your consideration of just how far your individual influence can reach.
