Have you ever followed someone online and thought to yourself: that person’s super cool, I wish I knew them in real life?⁣

I'm kind of a master at turning online contacts into real life friends. In fact, that’s how Sarah Vermunt of @careergasm and I first met for a coffee in the lobby of a bank. Yes, it was as dreamy as it sounds.⁣

The web is an incredible tool and making contact online can lead to beautiful, incarnate relationships if we’re willing to step out of our comfort zones.⁣

Something I really love about Sarah is her commitment to pursuing what feels good — she’s built an entire business around it. Sarah leans into the life-giving. She’s also refreshingly honest that things don’t feel good all of the time.⁣

Here’s a snap of her and me at the recent launch for her new book, Career Rookie. We’re pretty damn happy to be friends.⁣

I even got to endorse her book. Now, that FELT GOOD.⁣

Today I encourage you to invite someone you’ve interacted with online to connect in real life. Your long lost BFF could be just a coffee date away.⁣
