Hannah Lord - Why We Live in the Most Difficult Time in History to Be Single
Show Notes

Today's guest is psychologist and business consultant, Hannah Lord. Hannah's goal is to rewire the cognitive pathways keeping people stuck through her work as a therapist and her online program, The Weight Lift.

I met Hannah on the streets of London when I heard someone shout "Mo!" She mentioned that she'd been listening to the podcast and had a different perceptive on love and romance. I felt a strong desire to have her on and I'm so glad I did.

Hannah mentions that this is the most difficult time in history to be single, and I'd have to agree. Luckily, we also go over what we need to do to navigate this time to eventually find true love. And surprise, surprise, it starts with you, not them.
