It’s not every day you get to meet someone who’s been to Buckingham Palace to receive an award from Her Majesty The Queen. But that’s what happened when Kevin recently interviewed Kelly Lovell.

Kelly’s life story is quite remarkable. After being bullied in school she started her own business at the age of 19 with the intention of helping other young people get a great start in life.

Kelly went on to earn numerous accolades, including the QEII Diamond Jubilee medal and being listed as one of Canada’s Top 100 Most Powerful Women.

But how did she do it? And what can you learn from her that might help you achieve your goals? That’s what this episode of The Unstoppable Teen Podcast is all about.
