Backstory Behind Stephanie and Guest

I was introduced to Peter through Claudia Endler, who was a guest on the Relatable Valentine’s show. She mentioned he loves giving compliments to strangers and I knew I had to meet him! Peter and I met for afternoon ice cream to get to know each other. I knew instantly I wanted him to be on the show. We talked about life and the pursuit of happiness. Peter asks great questions and is a good listener. – Stephanie Michele
