Episode 26 - MAKING NEW FRIENDS AS AN ADULT with Renee Goble

and Aarin Spiegelman


Life is better with good friends, but making friends as an adult is quite different than when we were children, especially during a time of global isolation like COVID. So how do we make new friends as an adult? Renee Goble and Aarin Spiegelman join Jill for an open and honest conversation about the challenges and opportunities that come with expanding your inner circle in today’s environment, including tips and real life experiences on how to start a conversation, how to gauge energetically if it's a right match, and how to be a good friend to your new friend.

As an adult, we have so much less time: we have jobs, partners, children, and growing responsibilities. With such limited time, when you make time for friendships, you have to be selective and intentional - even more so now during these times of social distancing and isolation. But there’s still hope! In this episode, you’ll learn how to navigate this new landscape and explore ways to expand your circle of friends, even during COVID.
