“Being your true self is where all the juice is. Your brilliance is in that snarky comment too– Because all of those things make up the combination that makes you appealing. If you do a lot of self-editing, you will become less interested in doing any of this, because editing is boring as crap! ” – Terri Cole


Today I’m so excited to share this older interview I did on The Good Life Project podcast with Jonathan Fields. I hope you’ll learn something new from this episode, whether or not you already know my story. 

We chat about my early experience with alcoholism, how I left my career as an agent to fulfill my purpose as a therapist, and how we both balance being ourselves with being the face of our brands. Then, I share some advice about becoming and staying connected in long-term partnerships!
