My friend Katie Dalebout, author of Let It Out, has just relocated to New York City from the midwest, and I'm very excited to have her on the Holistic Spaces podcast to address the feng shui in her new space! Katie has her own podcast as well, Let It Out, so for this episode, we'll be doing a collaboration with her!
