 There are millions of people in the United States and billions throughout the whole world experiencing an emotional crisis. 

It's been a rough couple of weeks, even a rough month, with everything that's been happening in the United States. I want to address this because I know how painful it is for everybody that sees the gun violence unfolding.

I really believe that we all have the capability to contribute to the solution to this problem by developing human connections. Creating safe and vulnerable spaces for other people in our lives, even strangers, can have an enormous butterfly effect of healing and make a greater impact than we even intended.

It’s not always the easiest things to do, you may not have the right words to say, but connection is a great place to start.  I'm here to teach you how.


In this episode, we talk about:

  • Getting relief from emotional crisis.
  • Using the five-step customer journey to connect with and help others.
  • Becoming pain aware.
  • Creating space for vulnerability and connections.
  • Helping others identify their problems
  • Becoming a part of the solution through connection without compromising your safety.
