August shared a great book recommendation, in fact, she reads this one at least once a year! The Gift of Fear by Gavin de Becker, explores our internal signals or "hunches" when we may be in danger and why we should follow them rather than ignore them.
August gave us some golden nuggets during our interview, among them "change your language" and "text each other to stay in the pulse of each other's lives"
I mentioned a quote by Albert Einstein: "Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted" This illustrates our desire to "measure" everything, especially in our relationships.
