Authentic and Refreshing

Full disclosure - I’ve never met Christina IRL but have come to know her through social media. Her genuine enthusiasm and intelligence comes through in this podcast and I have to remind myself we’ve never met because she is so authentic. She and Peter do a great job playing off each other and sharing what it truly means to be partners in all areas of life.
