What’s the worst thing that can happen when one person asks another person for something? That they’re told no, right? No is the worst result, the one where you end up in the same place you started. The best result, of course, being yes. Or at least a partial yes. And even a partial yes […]


Why Your Why is So Important

His site is awesome, his podcasts are awesome, and he is one amazing guy. His passion for personal development, for […]
