My Morning Coffee Date 

Especially in 2020, having a little positivity is so important. Every time I listen to this podcast, not only do I have a smile on my face, I discover something about myself. And I consider myself to have a whole hell of a lot of self-awareness to begin with! It's almost cliche to say this now but it truly feels like you're having coffee with girlfriends!
