What's it all about?

We all hear the "overnight success" stories, but there is a huge piece of the puzzle they're leaving out!  Surely failure is a part of your journey!  My goal, to expose the "sticky middle", show you that everyone fails and you can turn that into success.

On Monday's I chat about my own fails along the way. These are available on to watch on YouTube!

Ep 105: After 1 year 353 days, I matched my old corporate monthly take home working for myself...

This week is a solo episode where I share a HUGE milestone in my journey.  I shared it on Twitter and thank you to all the kind words and support.  Matching my old monthly corporate earnings working for myself was a milestone that felt so far out of reach just 6 weeks ago that it shocked me when it happened seemingly so quickly.  Like most stories, this wasn't fast, easy or without a lot of work from me and support from so many others.  I break it all down and walk you through how I got here.
