“I always think there are areas I need to improve, which is true. But to just relax and wallow in the gratitude, or where you’ve come in that journey, helps me to settle back down and get a grip on things.”
“Each guest has significantly changed my life. To be able to connect with someone that’s an industry expert, to leverage their expertise to make changes in your life, and to be able to show that to your community is everything.
“Relationships are not just done behind a keyboard. You have to meet someone in person.”
