Episode #32: Dreams Don’t Need to Be Practical

In the busyness of life and all of the changes that the pandemic has thrown at us in the past two years, indulging in your passion may not seem practical. At least, that’s what some women were feeling in The Extraordinary Life Tribe last year. They felt guilty wanting more from life when they were already struggling with homeschooling, working from  home, and the constant changes to public health rules. Not to mention regular work and family life! 

In today’s episode, I interview Aria DiSalvio, a wife, mother, and musician who has struggled with those exact feelings. She joined The Extraordinary Life Tribe last year to find clarity on what she wanted her suddenly-paused musical career to look like, and came away feeling more confident in who she is now and who she wants to be moving forward. 

Listen in as we chat about following her passion for music, the lessons she’s learned over the past year, and how she’s raising her children to “go big” with their dreams, too.
