    How much more controversial can we get?! There are so many contradictory messages in the entrepreneurial space around debt. 

    "You can't be a successful business owner if you have debt."  

    "You must be willing to go into debt for your business or else you don't believe in yourself enough." 

    In this episode, I share my take on debt and entrepreneurship based on my own personal experiences and the insight I've gained as a result.

    (17:31) “The transformation is in the decision”

Valkk ,

Jackie was reading my mind!

I love that feeling when I'm listening to a podcast and the person is describing what I've been feeling in words I didn't even have for it yet. That was me listening to Jackie's episode on Alignment Activites... loved it!! The image of holding the latte is perfect because it really feels like you're sitting down and having coffee with her. Keep up the good work!

Healthy Beach Girl ,
