In episode 02 of The Cocktales Club, Losing My Religion, I am joined with Freda Collins, who is a Coach, Lifestyle Blogger, and Founder of Boundary Babe. Freda coaches spiritual, people-pleasing millennial women to become leaders of their own lives through building better boundaries through her 1:1 program and through Mentorship calls. She is also a Human Resources Major with a decade-long background in Psychology and Mentorship. Check out BoundaryBabe.net to find out more.

Simply put, The Cocktales Club has got you covered, baby!
