Maxie McCoy on Why You're Not Lost


Today’s guest knows all too well what it feels like to not know what the future holds...and what it feels like to keep on walking towards it anyway.

Maxie McCoy is a writer, author of the recently released book You’re Not Lost: An Inspired Action Plan for Finding Your Own Way, and a speaker obsessed with giving women the tools they need to believe in themselves. As a woman who is committed to the global rise of all women, Maxie writes weekly inspiration and monthly curriculum on her website for her audience.

It was such a joy to sit down for a soul-jam sesh with this vibrant, fierce and driven woman… one that I am certain will leave you feeling inspired, ready to march onward, and exactly where you’re supposed to be (whether you know where you’re headed or not.)
