S1.Ep12: Communication

posted in: Faves, Season 1, Series: Life Innovators | 0
Communication is essential to every kind of relationship. Our life innovator Aaron Browne finds that open, honest, and constant #communication is what allows him to carry on multiple relationships at once. This self-described “ethical non-monogamist” gets deep with us about boundaries, self-reflection, and how respect grows when you have to accommodate others. We also figure out that communication and community come from the same root for a reason.
