KEY QUOTES

The process is the piece that you become passionate about, and that’s where the happiness comes from. 

“If you’re not doing the thing that you’re passionate about and the thing that you love, you won’t be able to endure those tough times.”

“I want people to find that passion, take action, and start living. If you don’t take that initial step, you can’t learn if you like it or not. ” 

“When you have that thing you’re focused on and you take those little steps, you’ll be amazed at the people that will come to you to help.”

“When people really understand their true value and what they can contribute, that’s when they become unstoppable. “

“Taking action and getting outside your comfort zone is what’s going to make the difference of you staying where you are, feeling the way you feel today, and creating a life that you want to be living.”
