    In this episode, I pull back the curtain on how we respond to constructive criticism as business owners, using my own honest reflections on the anonymous feedback I gathered after the Therapy in the Great Outdoors Training Retreat. This was my first in-person training on nature-based therapy. You’ll hear REAL feedback from attendees at the retreat…both the positive AND the negative, cause that’s how I roll on this podcast (and in life and business in general). :)
