The Inner Art of Giving and Receiving
Embracing the Power of Paradox in Your Life

Author Patricia Spadaro exposes the real reasons we can become addicted to giving and sacrificing for others. She’ll tell your audiences why it’s so dangerous to be a give-aholic, how to stop saying YES automatically, why we fear saying NO to others, and simple steps for setting boundaries and being honest about unhealthy people in our lives. Invite your listeners to take her on-air quiz to find out whether they need to learn how to draw the line.

Patricia Spadaro is an internationally known author. Her books are available in 18 languages in more than 25 countries. Her latest book Honor Yourself: The Inner Art of Giving and Receiving is the winner of two national book awards.
