I give a shout out to music artist EyeLoveBrandon for the amazing work he is cranking out, and share a beautiful moment that he posted on Twitter recently of his father playing the piano. I talk about the book, The Four Agreements, and the big impact this little book has had on me over the years, and how it can help you to start your day off right.

    In this week’s solo episode, I open up about a long-time secret that I’ve only shared with close friends and family. I speak to regrets, imposter syndrome, and ways that we hold our selves back by limiting beliefs. I talk about the power of positive daily reminders like, “You are enough”, and the impact they have in your life as well as others. I also share a brief update on the work I’ve been cranking on during the transformation of ärtful and the impact it is already beginning to have.
