Today I’m sharing with you what might be one of my favorite episodes ever! My new friend and phenomenal poet Darryl Dzpasi is here to share his poem called YOU MATTER.

I also have Darryl tell me how he got to be so WISE and DEEP! You’ll get actionable takeaways for self-love, compassion, and navigating difficult emotions, as well as deep insight and perspective from Darryl’s unique experiences, which I know is so needed right now.

I LOVE this podcast! Alison is fun and crazy, and Eric is calm and easygoing. They're both so smart, and optimistic, and honest/open that I feel like we're actual friends in real life. Listening to this podcast brings me peace, and light, and delivers so much good information about self confidence and self improvement... I already feel like a better person just by sitting here and listening to them. I just can't get enough!
