Grief Rides Shotgun - New Episode
Monica Rivera's formula for overcoming loneliness
Monica Rivera had to learn to become her own best friend. But how do you do that when you’ve lost everyone you’ve ever loved?
In this two-part episode, business coach and TEDx speaker Monica shares how losing her entire biological family in a short period of time afflicted her not only with a deep grief, but also a unique kind of loneliness. And how she finally learned to cope—by discovering herself through curiosity and exploration.
Curiosity + Exploration = Becoming your own BFF
In part one of this interview, you’ll hear Monica speak on how she designed a thriving life in spite of her grief, the impact of origin stories, and having the audacity to chase your dreams even when the deck feels stacked against you.
“Live before you die.”
And because her story and impact are just too good to make you wait too long, and 2024 is about trying new things, part 2 will be out next week.
Even though this is a bi-monthly (as in every other Tuesday) show, it’s going weekly again for this one time.
Or maybe it’s a sign of things to come in 2024? 🤩
