The Love Fix

Apr 21, 2023

Sherry gets ready for Bike Week in Florida, and she and Carla share a good laugh about men with beer, bandanas, and bellies. They then take a Love Fix Question from a listener who just escaped a toxic relationship and started to realize now how bad it was after speaking with friends and reflecting on the situation. However, they still accept breadcrumbs and really need to move on for real. They then welcome special guest Laura K. Connell, a Trauma Informed Author and Coach who helps women uncover the blind spots that hold them back. Laura blogs weekly about healing self-sabotage and dysfunctional family dynamics.
