Today we discuss pursuing our inner truth and making life choices from a place of courage and love.
My first guest, Jim Higdon, is the co-founder of Cornbread Hemp, the first Kentucky company to offer USDA certified organic CBD products. He joins me today to discuss the growth of the hemp industry, how the stigma around CBD products is rapidly changing, and how consumers can educate themselves about the use and benefits of CBD products.
My second guest, Lynne Golodner, is a long-time entrepreneur, the author of thousands of magazine and newspaper articles and eight books, and a teacher of writing who has a passion for telling stories of how people find meaning in the mundane. She joins me today to discuss the importance of finding our meaning and using that to drive our work, career moves, and overall happiness.

“The reason why it appears that CBD helps with a wide variety of conditions is because all of those conditions are due to imbalances in the system, or inflammation in the system. The endocannabinoid system, when triggered by phytocannabinoids, can help communicate to those systems and bring them back into balance.” – Jim Higdon
