A helpful friend
In this video, I share my experience and feelings around the support my really good friend, Shantalea, gave me. I shared with her how I needed to purchase a stand for my artificial tree. She let me know that I did not need one because most come with a stand. With the help of technology, she was able to video chat with me. Shantalea successfully walked me through step by step.
I felt so empowered after this interaction.
