Starting a business is exciting but what many people don't talk about is the challenges that come with it.

To me those numbers don't mean anything unless I'm making an impact. 

People ask me, "When you speak how many people do you really think you can impact?" And I say "Well if I change someone's life, that's enough for me"

8 Things I Learned From Starting My Own Business

I have to be honest; I’ve been a little slow in replying messages on Facebook and emails because when I’m not coaching my clients, I’ve been spending a lot of time doing the deep inner-work on myself and also integrating them afterwards.

Have you heard of this saying “what you focus on expands”?

They’re not just empty words. It’s about your energy. Your energy determines what you’re going to achieve today, tomorrow or the next three months.
