Eat the Rules with Summer Innanen

I’m joined by Mara Glatzel, author of Needy and fellow coach. We’re talking about how to get in touch with our needs (and why it’s necessary to have needs), and how to move from a place of self-abandonment to one of self-partnership, radical self-care, and self-advocacy. She talks about the problem with traditional self-care and how you can honour your needs to strengthen your worth.
