About this Episode

Building up mental tenacity is something that can be tough in our working lives. Sometimes, it’s hard to know when we’re doing the right thing, and if we’re headed in the right direction.

While in Los Angeles, we sat down with Jennifer Kushell, founder of YSN, and had an AMAZING conversation around knowing how to stay tenacious.

Jen invited us to her lovely home and let us play with her Masai Warrior Spears from Morocco.

After spearing around, we got into the down and dirty of building your backbone.
