Episode #170 // Nurturing Connections with Monique Melton

"When you're asking for help, you're being vulnerable, and vulnerability brings intimacy and connection to relationships."
- Monique Melton

Whether you’re just starting your business or well into your stride, nurturing and building connections as a business owner is everything, so we had to have business and relationship coach, Monique Melton, join us to talk all about it. We’re diving into how to maintain strong relationships even if you’re an introvert or have a fear of rejection, how to get vulnerable enough to ask for help, and why diversity is so important when it comes to building a strong community.

 

“When you’re asking for help, you’re being vulnerable, and vulnerability brings intimacy and connection to relationships.”

“So often we internalize so many of the external things that it feels like they’re defining us.”
