271: One Yes Can Get You Out Of The Closet – Sherene McHenry

You do what you believe you’re meant to do – follow a certain career path, pursue the love of your life, build a family you’ve always dreamed of, and plan for retirement. That’s all good, but what happens when you still feel empty, unfulfilled, and no joy? Or even better yet, what happens when you say “Yes!” Yes to something that on the surface seems simple, and then changes everything.

Dr. Sherene McHenry said “Yes,” and it opened a closet door that she didn’t even know existed for her life. Now, she’s “grown up” and is doing what she’s been called to do. She decided to to Pick. To choose to create the life she loved…and this is her closet story.
