BROOKE SNOW THE PODCAST – Episode 72 Treasure Hunt versus Scavenger Hunt. Do you remember this from DAY #209? It has been one of my favorite take-aways from Brooke Snow’s podcast this year. I want to spend a few minutes today on SO WHAT SATURDAY talking about the practical application of treating life and challenges …
