A Journey with Vanessa Chiu

A Journey with Vanessa Chiu

This is a podcast for anyone who wants to renew their mindset. It's for those who want to step out of their comfort zone to learn, grow, and expand their knowledge. It's for those who want to embrace change, vulnerability, and the craziness of life. And it's for those who don't mind listening to raw, honest stories. (Although my podcast is under the self-improvement category, I cannot guarantee that I will not be talking about my love of comedy, space, and vegan baking on the show.) Have questions for Vanessa? Email hello@vanessachiu.com.
