Join me as I chat with best selling author, world-renowned business coach, entrepreneur, and all-around happy guy, Richie Norton, about how we can choose faith over fear. Richie’s life may seem like it’s good vibes all the time (I mean, he does live in Hawaii, after all!), but you’ll hear that he has deliberately chosen faith over fear after tragedy and betrayal countless times in his life. We talk about our tendency to gravitate toward fear and ways that we can live in faith. Richie shares powerful personal stories and lessons that will inspire you.
