Ep.86 Episode ‘Resilience and the Power of Reinvention with Ex-Cop Shirley Kennett’

In this episode I'm talking to an incredible human being, Shirley Kennett.

Shirley is an ex-cop and a former police cadet like me, and she's gone on to do some incredible and amazing things.

She talks about policing career and what caused her ill-health retirement, and then what she's gone on to from that point. She's doing some amazing things, and I promise you will not regret listening to this episode. It's just incredible.

She really opened up and told me everything, including some of her challenges. This is honestly one of the most emotional and motivating episodes I've ever recorded.

A lot more came out after we'd stopped recording and there is other stuff that she's done as well that we forgot to talk about. So, we may well save that for another episode.

And she's also agreed to do it as one of the live guests in the academy for us as well.
