    Jamie is the love of my life! I want to treat him that way, and so often, really, I don’t. But I try. It makes me happy to remember a time when, from observing us, someone assumed that we were in the early stages of love.

Fantastic Podcast!

I absolutely love Gretchen and Elizabeth’s podcast. Packed with great practical tips and tools to lead a more fulfilling life as well as brilliant interviews and stories all wrapped in a wonderful engaging, warm and friendly style. I frequently recommend this podcast to audiences in my classrooms who are attending my leadership and personal effectiveness courses. I am also an avid follower on Twitter and Gretchen’s books are a must read for anyone looking to make small but highly impactful changes in their lives. Can’t recommend this highly enough - superb.
