Limitless Grit Podcast
Shristi Gajurel
Hey there, this is Shristi and the Limitless Grit podcast is where I have honest conversations with social entrepreneurs, thought leaders, educators, artists and anyone who I believe dares to live their life on their own terms. Every person selected to be interviewed on this podcast has a unique and different perspective in life yet all of them have one thing in common: consciously choose courage over fear. Some of my interviewees have impacted millions of people’s lives while others are just getting started. Throughout this podcast, I will ask questions on how their ideas evolved and how they influenced people to join their vision.
