Consequential strangers matter.
When we look at the fabric of our lives and the numerous relationships we have, we often prioritize those relationships we consider as intimates. Our guest this week, author Melinda Blau, has been writing for years on the subject of relationships. Her book Consequential Strangers: Turning Everyday Encounters Into Life-Changing Moments (affiliate link) was nothing short of a page turner. I encourage you to get a copy and discover how the consequential strangers in your life make a difference in the story of your life.
We’d like to thank Jason Simon, a consequential stranger, for introducing us to Melinda!
