Winning Inside with Cheddy and Michelle

Life is a roller coaster; ups, downs, unexpected bumps, and turns are all part of the journey. How we handle those ups and downs impacts who we are, who we become and how we see ourselves. And many times, there are life situations that throw us for a loop and it impacts us in ways seen and unseen. These can have us feeling defeated, stuck, alone and wondering how to move forward. Cheddy Matthews and Michelle Wickman are joining forces to share interviews, chats, and their own journeys riding this roller coaster that we call “life.” If you are working through some of the ups and downs, loop de loops and corkscrews, then this is the podcast for you!
