Way to have Courage

TQ figures what was missing in our community and provided a solution. I agree with all of the rating that note this podcast is inspirational and motivation but there so much more to this podcast. But we all know potential and no action is just potential. Everyone has a story and that's a great way to start the conversation but TQ has taken it to another level. You will you gain prespective, and you will learn doable tips and tools. I love that we are hearing from everyday people who have employed everyday techniques and reached success. You don't have to be Warren Buffet or Orpah. Success looks different for everyone and you must define that for yourself...as long as you are humble, stay hungry and always hustle (what I have coined as #H3), you will meet your goals and reach success. I look forward to hearing more. Keep being selective with your interview selections! Thanks for having the courage to put something out that caters to the African American community.
