Featuring Rob Kandell as your host/coach/best-friend-you-never-knew-you-had, Tuff Love is a grab-bag of rants, listener Q&A’s, and captivating interviews with experts on everything from money-management to intimate touching.
For more than 20 years, Rob has shared his radically practical advice for finding passion and fulfilment in your work, your relationships, and your life. His advice is simple (though not necessarily easy): Connect with your deepest self (flawed as you may be) so that you can stop hiding, embrace life with authenticity and vulnerability and walk the unHIDDEN path.
When developing the unHIDDEN path, Rob recognized that there wasn’t one single ‘transformational moment’ or ‘unmasking’ that define an unHIDDEN life. Rather, living unHIDDEN is a process; a day-by-day exercise that’s equal parts getting to know yourself and revealing yourself.
With his unique style of candor and compassion, Rob gently tosses aside your bullsh*t excuses and shows you how to get out of your own way.
