When the Hard Stuff Happens . . .

With With Nora McInerny, Author, Podcast Creator, and Public Speaker
Season 4, Episode 9   November 2, 2021

We typically can’t prepare for them and they can catch us off guard, and yet we often often judge ourselves for how we react or behave in those moments — and after. Nora McInerny, author, podcast creator, and public speaker, joins us in this episode to talk about how to cope during those times, the ways they shape and change us, and why we can never move on or go back, but we can move forward.
