Fighting for Our Friendships

She Built This Interview with Friendship Expert, Danielle Jackson

Female friendships can be challenging…

Regardless of who you are. No matter whether it’s a friendship with a coworker, colleague, fellow business owner, or BFF from grade school. As my guest Danielle Bayard Jackson shares in this episode, female friendships are especially complex while being incredibly important! 

Because I’ve had my fair share of complex and complicated female friendships throughout my life, I had many questions! I thought you might as well, so I decided to bring in an expert in the matter, Daniel Bayard Jackson, who believes that it’s worth fighting for our friendships.

Danielle is a female friendship coach and educator who speaks about platonic women relationships and the science behind it. Her podcast, Friend Forward, is dedicated to teaching us how to create and maintain better female friendships. 

We get into:

  • What makes female friendships so unique and different
  • Why female friendships are worth fighting for
  • Whether or not you should strive to find friends outside of business and / or entrepreneurship 
  • How to find friends
  • And more!
