Is it candy or is it gold?

The term “free spirit” is frequently used to describe all different kinds of people- hippies, artists, slightly crazy geniuses. Really, almost anyone who lives life a little off the beaten path.

But what does that phrase actually mean? Just what, exactly, makes one a “free spirit?” And if you’re not one, can you become one? If so, how?

Today on the show, I talked to dog trainer Carol Sumbry about this very topic. Join us as we discuss her (rather circuitous) path into the world of animals, feeding your soul, and finding moments of gold in your everyday life.
