In this episode, AJ and I discuss:
“I am a huge believer in making eye contact with everyone. People are not getting the wrong idea when I’m making eye contact. People who are doing bad things don’t want to be seen. People who are having a bad day and need to be seen, it can change their whole day.” — AJ Klingerman
