I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Samantha when we both spoke at Marc and Angel Chernoff's event Think Better, Live Better. After seeing her speak, I found that there was plenty of alignment with our work and asked her to come on the show. During this conversation we talk about her book, what she means by overwhelm, the steps she believes can help you overcome overwhelm, and the idea of resolutions. There is a lot that we cover in our discussion and I'm pleased to be able to finally bring it to you after many months of trying to make it happen. Enjoy!

They will help you for many years to come.
