Episode 18 of The F Words: Difficult conversations with Dr Leandra Brady-Walker is #Friends: For a reason, a season and a lifetime with Giovanna Lever.
Giovanna and I connected in the strangest of ways.
It all really began when I bought a bottle of Vanessa Megan Natural perfume in Byron Bay. I snaped a shot, posted it on instagram and before I knew it, Vanessa contacted me herself saying how lovely it was to connect. From there, I sent her a copy of my first book and then on a whim, applied for their search for a new face campaign (my podcast photo is from the shoot and wrote an article on my experience). I gave them a bunch of my books to give away and Giovanna just happened to win one.
She loved my book so decided to email me. A quick (2 hour) skype conversation later and I was booked to speak at her event Wellness Woman 2016 and we were friends.
Giovanna is a natural connector, a warm bubbly and genuine human who has built a community Smart Sparrows out of a love of getting to know people. We talked about all things to do with friends in this episode.
