Mrs.Antoinette ,

Great Conversation!

I am here for this encouragement!

I love this!

This podcast is a wonderful reminder that even the ultra successful have failed. I sometimes struggle with burnout and feel like a failure when my body is insists I rest. Fear of failure and embarrassment have kept me from pursuing many things in life - including rest and relaxation. I’m just now starting to embrace the potential for failure. This is because I know deep down, my failures will only lead to my eventual success or pivot. Thank you for the reminder.

A voice of our generation

I’ve known JQ since I was a teenager. He first introduced me to the 5 Love Languages book and he’s been teaching me life lessons ever since without even trying. His view of the world is so unique based on his diverse experiences and variety of talents. He doesn’t share very much, but when he does you better listen.
