So Money - Episode 907

Debra Roberts

Author, The Relationship Protocol

“If you told me that you had two people who knew that if they sit face to face, it’s too difficult because it’s intimidating and it makes them feel vulnerable or it makes them angry and emailing each other works for them, I would say, ‘more power to you.” – Debra Roberts, The Relationship Protocol
