My friend and colleague Sandi Herrera joined me to talk about how she married and divorced the same man twice, everything she learned in the process, and how understanding and honoring her core values has helped her evolve as a woman, mother, and business-owner.
In this episode we talk about the true meaning of values (NOT what you've been taught!), how the human brain is actually naturally wired towards negativity, and how you can work to re-wire yours towards positivity, as well as the story of how she married and divorced her ex husband not once, but TWICE!
In the show, Sandi mentions 8 questions she asks herself each morning to help train her brain towards positivity. You can download those here.
