Quote from the episode
One of the things that I have learned in my wallflower-ness and not wanting to be out there and definitely not putting myself out there is that the more honest you are about yourself and your journey, that is how you find your community. There’s no AI that’s going to write a script. There’s no email sequence. There’s no social media schedule that’s going to bring your people to you.
~ Peya Robbins, Founder & CEO of Pey Pey the Operator
