If you’ve ever wanted to face fear or overcome fear in your life as especially during this Coronavirus “interesting” time, then do we have the facing fear show for you today!

I’ll be talking with award-winning Australian filmmaker, documentarian and author Bill Bennett, the producer of an all time favorite documentary, PGS, Intuition is Your Personal Guidance System and the producer of an upcoming film I’m sure to be a mega hit, documentary Facing Fear.

And that’s just what I want to talk with him about today, about facing fear, the five F’s of fear and how in the world to liberate ourselves from fear.
