    Episode 55 - Eye2Eye: Enough Water In The Jug

    Episode 55 - Eye2Eye: Enough Water In The Jug

    Hot off the heels of the BC Doctors of Optometry conference this weekend, I am energized and excited to share what I think was the most important take away of the weekend for me: abundance.
    In this episode I discuss how believing that there is enough water in jug to fill all our cups (having an abundance mindset) will change the way you look at your personal and professional life.
    Also, how to deal with those around us who do not have this outlook.
