This week I talk with writer and speaker, Scott Stabile. Scott is a fascinating guy who shares his life experiences in his book, Big Love: The Power of Living with a Wide-Open Heart. The book is a collection of essays that developed from the stories of love and authenticity he posted on his fantastic Facebook page. During our discussion, Scott openly reveals the challenges he faced after losing his parents in a tragic act of violence at the age of fourteen, why he shares his personal story with others and overcoming his fear of being judged, and how he finds the courage to bring his whole self to his work, his writing, and his creativity.
