December 2, 2022

Want to become more heart-centered? We invite you to join us on Deb’s Dailies (daily blog and newsletter), a daily reflection on living and loving life as a heart-centered leader.

Indian food is his passion. India was where he was born and raised, and hotels were where he learned his craft.

Irfan Dama is a chef who helps food management companies design, develop and implement exciting Indian food programs.

Over the past 10 years, he has developed a training program for cooks where Indian recipes are re-engineered to fit in with American food service processes.

His training methods shatter the misconception that only Indians can cook good Indian food by simplifying the process so that any cook who can follow a recipe is able to cook delicious Indian food.

He also maintains a weekly blog called India Like This Only, where he discusses Indian foods, culture, and more.

Episode 211: Holding Space for Others with Deb Crowe (solo)

November 25, 2022

In this solo episode, host Deb Crowe discusses the importance of holding space for others. November has been hard for many people. It’s more important than ever that we prioritize our physical and mental well-being.

Sometimes you just need to vent out your feelings without fear of negative consequences.

Sometimes you just need to not respond, just listen and make space for the other person to express themselves.

Sometimes you just need to prioritize yourself and enforce your boundaries.

Boundaries can make your inner circle smaller, and that is not an anti-social or selfish thing.
