This episode of Dear Gabby will teach you how to ask for what you need! I’ll share my 4-step approach for clarifying what you want, and asking for it with confidence and grace. If you have a hard time advocating for yourself—or come on too strong when you do—these steps will instantly empower you to identify your needs and get them met.

Today’s Dear Gabby will help you ask for what you want;  now, let me help you receive it! My 2023 Manifesting Challenge kicks off on January 1.
