What The Parent?

PJ and Cara

We're not your average parenting podcast. And we don't have your average guests. We interview zookeepers (because talking to our teens sometimes feels like trying to wrestle a lion in its habitat), ringside announcers (aren’t parents everywhere taking one on the chin?), FBI hostage negotiators (to help us successfully negotiate a clean room), and many more. Because parenting is hard, and we want to make it easier with any advice we can get.

Ever wanted to climb a mountain? How about all 7 of the tallest peaks on Earth? Lei Wang from www.journeywithlei.com did! Come listen how she changed her life to follow her passions, and how to climb your own inner Everest!
Lei Wang - Inspirational isn't strong enough of a word to describe her!In 2004, Lei, who grew up as a Beijing city girl who had no athletic training, set out to climb Mount Everest. She was on a promising career track in finance with an MBA from Wharton. But she was excited about proving that an ordinary person could climb Everest. That excitement empowered her to not only climb Everest but to become the first Asian woman to complete a journey to the summits of the highest mountains on each of the 7 continents and to the north and south pole, a feat called the Explorer’s Grand Slam. As she endured outstanding hardships and overcame seemingly insurmountable obstacles, she made an astonishing discovery. She discovered that excitement is the driving force that motivates and empowers every one of us and the secret to innovation, peak performance, and extraordinary achievements. Today as a coach, speaker, author, and adventurer, she travels the world to ascend new summits and empower individuals and organizations to dream big, take a leap of faith, and tap into the power of excitement to realize their potential and reach the heights of success.Follow her to learn more!Lei's Social Media Links:Website: https://JourneyWithLei.comPodcast: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/journey-with-lei/id1603445800LinkedIn: Business Page: https://www.linkedin.com/company/journeywithlei                       Personal Page: https://www.linkedin.com/in/leiwang/Facebook: Public Page: https://www.facebook.com/JourneyWithLei                         Personal Page: https://www.facebook.com/wanglei8848/Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/journeywithlei/Twitter: https://twitter.com/journeywithleiYouTube: https://www.youtube.com/journeywithleiSupport the show
