These houses would be humongous and very expensive, but it’s the idea that ‘Your reality can be expanded 100-fold.” 5:05 – Sarita’s favorite chapter: “Mittens.” A run-in with prejudiced women on a Chicago sidewalk led Gabrielle to deconstruct the micro-aggression behind what about her could be perceived as “threatening.” 19:19 – Rapid-fire questions! #1: How do you handle holiday potlucks? #2: Most memorable Christmas gift? #3: Least favorite Christmas song? #4: How many glasses of wine at the holiday party? 26:55 – What Swirl Suite is looking forward to in 2018? Glynis: Debt-free and a trip to Bali! Leslie: Planning upcoming vino301, and I’m figuring that out! Excited for that! In 2018, I’ll be efficient and organized. Sarita: I finished a production certification class, and I have a new gig! Producing another podcast behind-the-scenes! I offered my services, and they hired me! Brionna: I’m excited to put my energy behind the Bri Books podcast, and go full force with what really matters to me. I’m excited for that.
