It’s hard making new friends after college. It’s also hard keeping friends after college. Friendship is hard, yet vital to our well-being. Brenda gets into the ugly truth of the trap of saying no, and some advice to cope with sudden loneliness one gets in their twenties.
Brenda shares her experience of two types of negative people in the world, and gives advice on how to handle them–so you don’t become one yourself. Also having made the leap to self-employment, she encourages you to no longer be afraid!

He shares his personal experiences of an unhappy job, the physical toll it had on him, the incredible turnaround that followed after, and some blunt but invaluable advice he has for twenty-somethings (and up!).
