964. Cara Alwill On Approaching Relationships As A High-Achieving Woman

All my high-achieving single ladies out there, this one is for you! I’m joined by Cara Alwill, bestselling author and host of the top-rated podcast, Style Your Mind, to discuss why so many successful women have trouble dating. Cara sheds light on what’s happening in the dating scene and how women can approach it differently to have fun with it again. 

We dig deep into why you need to deprogram all the unsolicited advice out there and start to follow your intuition instead. I also share my perspective about expanding and overcoming challenges in relationships as someone who has been married for almost 20 years.
