Ten years ago Louis Boria had a dream about knitting that changed his life.  His story is proof that if you follow your passion, regardless of what others may think, you will find success.  Louis feels that no one should have a fear of doing what they love because of fear of judgment from others, or what others may think.  He says that one of the best ‘side-effects’ of his knitting is that he is helping to break down barriers and expectations around gender roles.  In this podcast, Louis and I talk about living life with passion, purpose, and freedom.
