Did you know?

Words of Wisdom

“Don’t get comfortable. Once you do, it’s difficult to go back to growing. You lose the edge.”

“There’s no black and white. Every situation is gray. Analyze it from both sides, and check your ego at the door.”

“Don’t be scared. Believe in yourself. Whatever the challenge is, you can figure it out. I’m going to say yes and figure it out on my way.”
