Powered by Podetize

Stay On Course and learn to lead your life. Do you know your purpose in life? Are you guided by a foundation that is rooted in self-awareness?

Join host Julie Riga, best selling-author and ICF leadership coach as she explores different topics in leadership, personal development, and faith. Julie Riga is the daughter of renowned chef to the stars, Ennio Riga. Ennio Riga razzle dazzled the kings and queens of Hollywood, like Frank Sinatra, Liberace, and Joan Rivers with his scrumptious Italian-inspired cuisine. This is a podcast about abundance and faith. Julie was never supposed to be a best-selling author. Julie was never supposed to have an MBA. Julie, at a young age, was met with physical and emotional challenges that should have suppressed her from reaching her potential. In every episode, you will know that you are not alone in the challenges you face. This is the key ingredient to success: Stay On Course.
