Face is the new social currency of our time. Face represents one’s self-esteem, self-worth, identity, reputation, status, pride, and dignity. The more face you have, the easier and faster you can get things done. “Saving face” is a universal concept that enables you to connect with people, break down barriers, and build trust and long-term relationships. When the phrase “it’s not about the money” is used, the real issue is often about face. Join Art and Maya as they discuss these concepts and so much more. Get a notebook; you'll want to take notes!
