106: "We take for granted the safe space we've provided for each other to really tell our stories." Slowing down to cultivate relationships with Jen & Nani

This conversation is also available on YouTube:

It's safe to say that being on Zoom since the start of the pandemic has caused many of us to make more intimate connections online. Jen and Nani discuss how much they've enjoyed slowing down in the number of interviews they conduct to deepen relationships with past and new guests, their gratitude for TFAW Project becoming a safe container for our community to candidly and vulnerably discuss better ways to communicate with one another, show stats, and much more.
