    Hi guys, today, we have a SOLO episode! I love my job and I love being able to connect with you all through social media but I’m also hyper-aware of how it impacts our minds and perceptions of those we follow. We know by now that social media isn’t REAL, it’s all the best parts and it often flattens us into two-dimensional characters. And it is so important that we remember that we are all more complex, that we’re all trying our best to figure things out as we go. There’s no such things as a perfect parent or a perfect relationship or a perfect business. We all face challenges whether it’s internal or in our environment and I hope this episode makes you feel less alone in that.

CaroRestrepo ,

Wholesome

I’m captivated by the genuine authenticity that I know V has from following her on social media but most importantly what she brings out on her guest. Makes me want to sit and talk to her .. I don’t relate to all the topics but I feel like I always take something with me after I listen.

Yaassyas ,

Love this

Love the show! It’s my favourite thing to listen to when I am driving

millenialmentalhealththerapist ,

Interviewing is not the best

She has amazing guests on the show and seems like a very sweet person. However, the interviews tend to turn around to be about her instead of allowing the focus to be on the guest. Also, a lot of the questions asked are done so by also providing two options as answers and I don’t think she’s realizing she’s doing this. It would be nice to just allow the guest to answer on their own
