EXPLORING THE POWER OF COLLABORATION AND CIVIC ENGAGEMENT IN NORTH CENTRAL WASHINGTON

Mar 5, 2018

My guest this week is Lisa Bradshaw, who is passionate about inspiring people to take charge of their happiness through her DON'T WAIT PROJECT. The project encourages people to do things that give their lives meaning, joy and fulfillment, from the smallest acts of kindness to more profound life changes.

 Bradshaw knows a lot about loss. She survived a bout of cancer at age 24, then lost her husband to a rare condition eight years later that left her and their five-year-old son with a profound hole in their lives.

She found her way through the grief and transformed the pain into a book called, Big Shoes: A Young Widowed Mother’s Memoir. That powerful book is truly inspiring.

The Don’t Wait Project is a logical extension of the book. She wants others to take charge of their happiness now and not wait for the unexpected to happen.

She’s embarking on a six-state tour DON'T WAIT PROJECT tour this month, thanks to the sponsorship of Town Toyota. She’ll be focusing on stories of resilience in communities in the western United States. She’s quite an inspiration. I hope you enjoy the conversation.
