This week, Kurt and Tim sit down with Emma Seppälä, author of “Sovereign,” to discuss the importance of understanding and embracing our emotions, practicing self-compassion, and relying on intuition in our decision-making process. In this empowering conversation, Emma emphasizes the transformative power of self-compassion and self-love in our daily lives.
