26 Minutes With is a podcast that defends those that have a different view, that come from the heart and have the courage to speak up, act and affect positive change.

Heart and soul leadership is missing in the world today. What if we need to awaken to new ideas and possibilities and the track we are going on is not always the best? We need to have dialogue, open, honest and raw at times to discover this truth.
