This week we’re continuing our Summer Series with a super special guest, Patrick Kucharson, a gift coach who specializes in helping people give more meaningful gifts while avoiding the stress that comes with it.
I must confess that I love giving gifts, but I understand that giving meaningful gifts can be challenging for many people. Life gets busy, and special occasions can sneak up on us, leading to rushed gift card purchases or relying on next-day deliveries from Amazon. If you can relate to this, today’s conversation will help you have fewer of these stressful moments.
Don’t let gift-giving stress get the best of you. Tune in to this episode and discover how to give meaningful, memorable gifts throughout the year. Get a head start on your holiday shopping and make gift-giving a joyous and stress-free experience.

- The three most common gift-giving mistakes and how to avoid them

- How to buy great gifts for the most difficult people to buy for
- Gifts that you should avoid buying and how to give better gifts when on a budget
