The best part of this is that you too can apply these to your...

But over the years I’ve found that not every client needs to have weekly calls, and there are plenty of other mediums that allow for them to work through their ideas and challenges.

My guest and friend Kaitlyn Kessler, mindset and leadership coach, agrees with ...
