Description: Welcome into The Sandbox, a podcast for the 20-somethings who want to live the best version of their life and are seeking the skills, strategy, and mindset to do just that.

Today’s guest is Jonathan Miller, a speaker, facilitator, and communication coach. He is also the host of the incredible podcast, Mindful Communication, where he has conversations with thinkers and influencers about the art & science of connection. In this episode, Jonathan and I discuss why there is no right or wrong whenever it comes to communication. He also gives advice on how to say no to an invite, how to give a powerful apology, and how to take on someone else’s perspective.

This episode is perfect for anyone who wants to have more clarity with their words. I hope you enjoy it!
