About This Episode

Do you ever feel like the world, the country, your neighborhood and even your workplace, are all going in a cultural direction that you don’t always feel comfortable with? What do you do? How do you buck the trend? How do you go against the tide and stand up without the fear of being ridiculed or made fun of? In today’s episode, we discuss Morrie’s belief that, “If you don’t like the culture, don’t buy it.” It’s as pertinent today as it was when Morrie uttered these words over 20 years ago. From the culture of celebrity we face today, to the obsession with divisive politics, all of these are part of a cultural environment that sometimes we don’t feel we’re a part of. Join Mitch and Lisa to find out how to follow your own heart and stay true to yourself.
