friendship from the VIP call

I just watched yesterday’s VIP call, and I got an answer about a friendship I’ve struggled with for nearly five years. (Same long weekly phone calls at her convenience.) After the VIP phone call, I was finally able to write a really kind email to my long-term friend, asking for a change that would actually work for me now. (She is retired, and I’m not.) I asked for flexible times that work for my schedule, not a weekly appointment that takes a chunk out of my work day. Anyway, it’s very rare that I watch a call when I don’t feel “coached” when it’s over!
