Welcome to Season 5, Episode #1 of Discover the Leader in You! I have a question for you today? Why is it that some entrepreneurs thrive while others just go through the motions and not see the results that they desire? More on that question in a minute, but I want to share…We’re back after a brief sabbatical!
Taking a sabbatical was one of the best decisions I have made relative to DTLIY! I was able to complete some writing projects and prepare to launch Speak Life University. Stay tuned because we are rolling out a new format and frequency. More updates to come!
How Some Entrepreneurs Thrive
Continued from above: Now some might say, I didn’t have the opportunities other people had, or I just didn’t know the right people or, it just wasn’t meant to be! Well, I have to share with you today that it’s all about mindset and embracing a winning attitude of no matter what you may encounter, you must keep fighting your way through it until you realize your dreams and your goals.
