How to connect with others and deepen relationships.

This has been a new ‘aha’ moment for me over the last few months.   I was listening to a Gabby Bernstein podcast where she talked about the risk of putting others up on a peddle stool.   Her message was simple: When you do this, you are reducing your chance for connection.   The energy is off.

The ripple effect of being Authentic!
