  • S 2 Ep 4: Values Based Choices

    Sep 28 2021

    In this episode of The Crossroad Podcast, Joey and Kylie get into the heart of good decision-making. Understanding our values is the key to making consistent choices.

Naming values, truly, can help give confidence, clarity, and consistency to our decision-making.
