Get inspired, gain new perspectives, and learn the things that will push you to your next level! 

I’m a big fan of diversifying where you get your learning. Yes I’d like you to learn from the videos I’ve crafted for you, but there’s so many amazing educators with incredible perspectives to share. So be sure, to explore when it comes to where you receive your training. I do have favorites, and strategic ways on how I use them. In week 11 of the program we talk all about this. Tools, People, and Tactics. You’ll learn how to balance your intake of information and turn your learnings into a fun routine filled with actionable execution strategies that help you grow no matter how busy you think you are.
