In a world that values speed and convenience over depth of connection, the need for meaningful connection remains unfulfilled.


The simple yet profound gesture of writing a handwritten letter can bridge the gap between digital relationships and real connections.


It's a way to reach out, uplift one another, and create a profound impact on people's lives. Handwritten letters are more than just words on paper.


How can reaching out to people help to uplift them? Can we actually build meaningful relationships by sending handwritten letters and notes?


In this episode, I’m joined by keynote speaker and author of Dear Dana: That Time I Went Crazy and Wrote All 580 of My Facebook Friends a Handwritten Letter, Amy Daughters. She shares how writing letters to her Facebook friends helped her become the best version of herself, and how she built connections through this method.
