Episode 413: Cynt Marshall CEO of the Dallas Mavericks on Navigating Grief, Joy, and Hope

My new friend, Cynt Marshall (henceforth dubbed QUEEN of That Sounds Fun Land), is on the pod today and I can’t wait for y’all to hear this conversation! Cynt is the CEO of the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks (I mean…how fun is THAT?!). Her new book You’ve Been Chosen is seriously incredible. We talked all about how her cancer journal ended up being a book about hope and joy, and the importance of morning rhythms. Also. Her story about praying over President Obama had me ROLLING with laughter!
(FYI, we talk about a bit about domestic violence. This topic may be tender to you, so I wanted you to know before you listened so you could care for yourself well. And, for our #miniBFFs, this show may be too grown-up for their little ears.)
