Whole & Unleashed – Podcast

David-Bastedo - Episode 08: Whole & Unleashed

I met Jess working at an Agency many years ago now. We used to make images together. She was my Art Director and I enjoyed working with her very much.

She left the Agency world and went on to become a Wellness Coach and Strala Yoga Guide. She created a Podcast called Whole & Unleashed – about coming home to ourselves. chats on burnout, pivoting, fulfillment & more.

I was delighted when she asked if I would be on. Of course I said yes.
