My husband Tom and I were recently chatting and he was telling me about how he had been describing me to his new co-workers. One man said his girlfriend is pretty shy and Tom replied with, “My wife can talk to anyone for an hour whether they are 5 or 90.” I lit up hearing him say that, even though he didn’t think much of it. In a single moment I became aware of this amazing talent that I never realized I possessed. I really can sit and talk to just about anyone for an hour and love every single minute of it. When I shared this story on TikTok I had a lot of people asking how it was so easy for me. I’ve had some time to mull it over and I’ve put together my 5 best tips — heads up, this isn’t some BS fluff post — this is real hardcore truth.
