Reading Time: < 1 minute
The next Whole Life Challenge starts in:

About a month before the start of the Spring Challenge, we sent out an email to six Whole Life Challenge players who all had a lot of experience playing the game, were active in social media, and seemed to have experience around participating in the Challenge that they were willing to share. These 6 people became our first ever Whole Life Challenge Ambassadors!

You may recognize their names from our Official FB Group – Jessica Trundy, Abba Corliss, Athena Slavin, Kristin Kaschak, Ayesh Kamal, Susan van Inwegen. We think they’ve done a fantastic job as our first ever Ambassadors.

We thought it would be fun to have them on the Podcast – to share their unique perspective on the Whole Life Challenge, what they’ve learned, how they approach things, and their tips for best Challenge practices. They are both veterans and have had a lot of interaction with players during this Challenge, and let me tell you, they didn’t disappoint!
