The Nerve to End Toxic Friendships

Even with the best of intentions, we sometimes find ourselves caught in the storm of toxic friendships.

Toxic friendships are like chameleons. They often start as uplifting bonds, offering support, shared laughs, and promises of unconditional camaraderie. But over time, these so-called friendships can subtly transform, draining our joy, corroding our self-esteem, and leaving us feeling emotionally exhausted.

Recognizing if a friendship is “toxic” isn’t always as straightforward as we’d like. These relationships have a way of hiding behind facades of ‘honesty’ or ‘just kidding’ remarks. 

In this solo episode of You’ve Got Nerve, I’m diving deep into the world of toxic friendships and sharing how to break up with friends who make you feel more drained than your smartphone battery at the end of a long day.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • Recognize the signs of a toxic friendship
  • Have “the talk” with a toxic friend
  • Cut the cord with toxic friends who refuse to change
  • Liberate yourself and create your own support squad

I’m looking for 15 people who want to learn my profitable retreat process of hosting unforgettable client retreats and VIP days around the world that rake in profits… and the business model behind it.

You are perfect for this if you have dreamed about how to....

  • Earn $100k+ in profits, specifically from client retreats, while getting to visit and explore some of the most fabulous places in the world.
  • Budget strategically so you don’t lose money.
  • Deliver an epic retreat experience that delights your clients with plenty of room for rest and rejuvenation (perfect for introverted retreat hosts like me!).
  • Plan, promote, and profit using my proven marketing strategies, pricing method, and marketing timeline.

For the past 15 years, I’ve been the queen of hosting sold-out retreats in places like NYC, Morocco, Ireland, Italy, the South of France, Paris, Scotland, and even aboard the Queen Mary II … I could go on, but you catch my drift!

I've got a knack for crafting over-the-top retreat experiences that make guests feel like absolute royalty.

Now I’m whipping my 15+ years of experience in hosting/leading retreats and VIP Days (speaking of VIP Days, I'm back offering them! Apply here) into this training, and passing my wisdom on to you.

If you’d love to plan unforgettable and wildly-profitable client retreats, and you want to learn it from me, email support@susanhyatt.co with "Retreat Genius", and I'll send you the info.
