I'm launching a four part series on lessons learned from the Corona virus in 2020.
Our second guest in this series, on this episode, is Food Network designer, Taniya Nayak, and as usual, she has many uplifting messages to share.
More light and love than you're used to is a good thing. Especially in 2020 when there is still a lot of uncertainty and the new normal is setting in.
Want to hear some positive things that have come out of this crazy pandemic?
Well, you're in luck. Listen in and you'll be smiling all the way through.
She has this effect on people, and it's something we should never get tired of!
