Become Your Badass Self

Tired of feeling discouraged and in a rut? It’s time to boost self-confidence and learn to become your badass self. This week on the Happier & Healthier Podcast, I sit down with psychologist, Dr. Lauren Hazzouri, to break down society’s BS and figure out how to truly be yourself.
