Episode 8

Inspiration vs Influence




In today's episode, we discuss some of our biggest inspirations, as far as pop culture and history goes.  We are not talking about spiritual or mindfulness specific teachings.  We talk a lot about our views on the difference between inspiration and influence, as well as empowerment.  Some of our biggest inspirations overlap, such as Walt Disney, JK Rowling, and Kanye West.  So we go more in depth on those, especially Walt Disney and Kanye West.
