Quote: “Your soul support posse, these are people that lift you up, that light you up, that are going to advocate for you, that want the best for you, and that are willing to also be celebrated as well.”

Hey, Brave Table fam! Join me in this episode as I share my take on building and keeping real-deal friendships. From moms juggling playdates to busy entrepreneurs glued to their businesses, we talk about the challenges of each. Let’s dive into studies on living your best life and on why diverse friendships are key for a killer social life. Get ready for some heartfelt advice on making friendships stick, celebrating the wins, and ditching the ones that simply don’t.

In this episode, we talk about…

  • Friendship Fumbles: spilling the tea on why making mom friends at the playground is sometimes like dating
  • Exploring why having a solid crew is like a fountain of youth, according to studies
  • Being intentional about your friendships and why it’s a game-changer
