Pace and I had a fantastic conversation about figuring out what you need and determining how to advocate for those needs in your relationships. I am so grateful to her for how much she shared, because I had a ton of lightbulb moments for how to show up in my relationship with greater clarity! Throughout the episode, Pace shares personal anecdotes and tangible tools that help us connect with others more deeply and live with greater intention.

Tune in to hear us explore…
