Anything else you would like to share?
1. As children we used to DREAM! And we dreamed big. What happened to that fire and spirit? I want us to dream again as adults. Dreams can come true.
2. Surround yourself with people that inspire you and stretch you; people that support you. Create an “Empowerment Circle”.
3. Become a student again, if you are not where you want to be. It is never too late. We were taught to work for a company, not own the company. We were taught to read the books, not write them. But know is this day and age we know we can. Become a student again. Invest in yourself. Invest in your dreams.
