Quotes

I’ve become the antithesis of what my destiny would dictate I’d become


Creating a movement is the long game


If you wake up everyday, and do what brings you peace and passion you’ll end up in the right place.


We were in business 20 years before my first book was written.

I think you are hardwired and made with a destiny.


Part of transformation at scale and creating a movement is letting go of the past and embracing the future
