“I love thought pieces that keep on giving, and this one provides several gifts on many levels. Not only is it enjoyable, you get to keep access to the resources so you can sense, probe and reflect. Layne’s style is, well, Layne. She is engaging, funny, vulnerable and of course open. I found the work was easy to follow with a great pace. Plus, there’s bonus resources you can dip into, like a wonderful Spotify playlist! If you want to pause, reflect and awaken parts of your life then jump onto this one. It could be a slow burn or a rapid release, whatever your pace, you will keep thinking and delving.”
