When to End, When to Start with Emily P. Freeman

This week we’re joined by author Emily P. Freeman to discuss key insights from her new book, How to Walk Into a Room: The Art of Knowing When to Stay and When to Walk Away. This is a book for anyone standing at a threshold, trying to discern the how, when, and what of making a change, with peace, confidence, and a whole heart. With particular emphasis on our individual “discerning process,” this conversation offers a roadmap for deciding our next move.
