TAP 182 - Fly On The Wall with Tim & Ricardo

Summary:

This week, I have an inspiring and casual conversation with my very good friend, Ricardo Laborin.  We often have very in depth conversations in real life and felt it would be fantastic to share some of them with the TAP community.

Ricardo had his own experience with anxiety and it forced him to make some massive changes in his life.  Since I met Ricardo in 2013 we have travelled to various parts of the world in pursuit of a better life and we will be continuing that endeavor.
