There’s little I love more than getting lost in a great story. Give me a good book and a quiet spot and it’s entirely possible you won’t hear from me for hours. Of course, I also really like being active, which doesn’t always mesh well with my reading habit. I’m not gonna lie — I have absolutely skipped workouts because I couldn’t bear to tear myself away from a book. So, when I got an email from Audible about how the audio entertainment platform can help people stick to their fitness goals, I was keen to learn more. I’ve been…

A few weeks ago I was at the gym, hanging out with my daughter after the workout, when a fellow member and friend came up and asked me a question that really gave me pause. What’s inspiring you these days? he asked. In the moment, I was dumbfounded. No one had ever asked me that before — and I’d never thought to ask it of anyone else, either.
