Grit & Grace is a show that bypasses the BS to take an unfiltered look at life, starting the conversations that matter and inviting you to be part of them and more importantly, continue them. Armed with wit and wisdom, we aim to up the ante on what it means to live life with grit and grace by sharing stories, strategies and answering YOUR questions about life, love, work and more.
