    Awesome interview. I’m going through a huge transition right now as I leave my 9-5 job and pursue my lifelong dream of becoming a full-time freelance writer. Cara’s story was inspirational as she’s gone through the same thing I am going through right now and is living a life I want to live! I hope to go through yoga teacher training this fall–fingers crossed!
