Books that Changed my Life

It’s crazy to look back and realize that a book literally changed my life. I’m a pretty big reader anyway – I usually burn through 2-3 books a week. So while yes, I do read a lot, it also means that the ones that stand out are extra special. I realized I kept telling peopleContinue reading “Books that Changed my Life”

Are You Sure You Can’t?

It’s something I hear all of the time. Heck, it’s something that I used to get caught up in all of the time. And it’s the concept of “I can’t.” People love to talk about what they ‘can’t’ do.

Episode 18: What are you consuming?

What are you allowing to fill you? What are you consuming on a regular basis? These questions are a lot more important than we think.

If you’ve listenedContinue reading “Episode 18: What are you consuming?”

Episode 17: Do you receive compliments?

When someone compliments you, what’s your initial reaction? How do you respond? What is your physical reaction to receiving a compliment?
