Today on the show I’m talking to Leisse Wilcox, professional human and real-life adult. Leisse and I discuss mindset and creating a life that you want, and how these were the keys to her positive breast cancer journey. You’ve never heard mindset discussed like this before! We get into how it can be used not just to heal ourselves, but to dismantle (or uphold) systems of oppression.
