This episode is brought to you by, well, YOU!  I haven’t built up my audience enough to have attracted sponsors and all that, so even though it’s the holiday season, you get to support the show without my selling you stuff.  Isn’t that great!   So, instead of buying an organic cotton shirt or an online course, maybe you can just buy me a coffee!   

Go to https://ko-fi.com/sharinginsights to drop a few dollars in the bucket and let me know you care.
