… best girls lunch today…

…with spiritual advisor and Brevard reality cast member Joy Resor… and our casual lunch turned into a “real life” talk about dealing with “difficult-to-deal-with” people (you know the type)… I wasn’t expecting the serious topic or the great advice she gave… it was great!  I see now why her clients go to her for guidance.. xo
