Welcome to another episode of the Women in the Middle Podcast

Want to know the meaning of life? You’ll love my guest this week, the creator of the new book ADVICE FROM AMERICA: Life Advice and Photos of 1,000 Strangers from 48 States.

His name is Imran Nuri and he’s a 25-year-old fine art photographer and storyteller. Essentially, he embarked on a huge project to discover and share the meaning of life.

That’s how Imran thinks about his journey. His project involved soliciting life advice from strangers in 48 states. He drove 15,000 miles, slept in his car, photographed strangers, and had a meaningful & amazing time!

Imran came to the conclusion that the meaning of life is to experience life fully…the good, the bad, and the in-between.

In this episode, Imran summarizes his project, the experience, his insights, and the three ways to experience this amazing work yourself.

I can’t wait for you to hear his unique story and message about creativity, imagination, unity, and how to make sure you don’t live with regrets.  It’s powerful stuff! Please enjoy this episode.
