We talk about the importance of relationships and authentic communication in business. Teresa introduces us to a fascinating tool called Crystal Knows, which is a DISC Assessment Plugin on LinkedIn. It's all about understanding different communication styles and preferences. Teresa explains how recognizing and respecting these diverse styles can significantly improve our interactions and connections.

Let's not forget about the amazing Boss Lady Community that Teresa founded. It's a membership-based platform that empowers and educates women. And their annual conference? Oh, it's a game-changer!
