Today’s episode is a lively conversation with author, wordsmith, and thought leader, Alexandra Franzen.
Alexandra’s website is a go-to resource for me when it comes to finding how to say what isn’t always easy to say. She’s got a wealth of information and soul-filled guidance to share.
In today’s show we are covering a wide variety of topics including: getting the most out of our day, scheduling our calendars with intention, amazing books that have changed our lives, and saying no to people in a graceful and respectful way.
This show is perfect for anyone looking to listen to a thought-provoking conversation around ways we can live our lives deliberately and peacefully.
