I always appreciate it when people tell the truth as they see it and don’t sugarcoat or beat around the bush. I trust that raw honesty and find myself reaching out to the truth-tellers when I need advice and support.
Liz Pryor, today’s guest on the Cracking Open podcast is one of these incredible truth-tellers.
She is the published author of two books: What Did I Do Wrong?, a book of advice on female friendship, as well as her provocative and moving memoir, Look at You Now, which promptly became a Chicago Tribune bestseller.
Liz has blessed the TEDx stage and appeared on Good Morning America as their advice guru on family and friendships. Her work has been featured in Redbook, Elle, Forbes, Good Housekeeping, and People, and she contributed to the anthology, 65 Things to Do at 65, alongside Gloria Steinem and Jane Fonda.
Join Liz and me as we talk about letting go of unhealthy friendships, and how to help our kids find a better balance with their device usage. We also take a deep dive into Liz’s own “cracking open” story that held deep lessons for her around loss, motherhood, family, and friendship.
Liz lives in Los Angeles and is totally convinced that her job as a single mother to three kids has given her most of the scrappy wisdom that comes from living everyday life. I’m so glad she is here today to share that wisdom with all of us.
