New Beginnings, Millennial Style
Today’s Walk of Shame episode is all about New Beginnings, Millennial Style.
As I’ve talked about over the last couple of weeks, I’ve decided to expand the concept of the Walk of Shame Podcast theme of relationships and dating, to a broader life philosophy podcast that goes along with my Millennial Mentor consulting business and with the themes I write about in my upcoming book,
