  • Casie shared that it took her nearly 5 years to get back on track after her sister’s death.
  • We talked a bit about depression – something I think way more people suffer from then we truly know about.
  • Casie talked about how she tries to find “one small win” throughout the day to keep her going. LOVE LOVE LOVE this!
  • Casie described how her passion – Living Out Loud – looked in the beginning and how it evolved over the years.
