GreenPath recently hosted a live virtual event where we were joined by guests who have been featured on GreenPath’s Real Stories Podcast. Guests included Katie (episode 1), Tammy (episode 2) and Dawn (episode 6).
Recorded in May 2020, this conversation gave our guests a chance to reflect on some of the positive things happening during this difficult time and areas where they are having newfound anxiety.
Throughout the conversation, listen for stories of how people have coped in the midst of challenge, along with practical tips for stretching your budget.
