    Be Polite: You Can('t) Speak Your Mind

    It's time to say it. Speak up for yourself. Don't hold it in anymore, say what's on your mind and advocate for yourself in every area of your life. J.J. Savaunt joins the pod to chat about:

    how not speaking up in a potentially dangerous situation made her realize the importance of using her voice, 
    how fear made her conflict avoidant, 
    the approach she takes when speaking up for herself with people she doesn’t know, and 
    how she uses writing as a form of using her voice.

Favorite with 10 Stars!!

Thank you Lauren. I meant to listen for 10 mins and found myself here for 45+ minutes. Thank you. Loved the episode on meditation with April Bennett. Indeed. Love outdoors and recently got into meditation and yoga myself. Can’t wait to hear more from your podcast! This made my morning.
