Stephen joins me today to discuss his views on love, loyalty, and his concept of “carefrontation.” He shares the importance of redefining success and intentionally celebrating the lives of our loved ones. We discuss the power of utilizing quiet morning moments to connect spiritually. Stephen also highlights how everyone’s life has depth and can be a starting point for crafting stories that people will want to read.
