In Episode 16 of The Flying Kitchen Podcast I give you an update on how my transition to Germany went and how practicing “radical honesty” was my key to coming through a very stressful time. I talk about why you don’t need to be at 100% in order to show up in the world, and how just by being honest – you can help others.
