Top 3 Takeaways from this Episode:
- Sometimes you just gotta hustle and grace isn’t going to happen. That’s totally okay, don’t apologize for committing to making it happen.
- The time honored advice of be yourself is always a good place to start. Show up and do you. Don’t be a cheap imitation.
- If it’s all about the money, you’re going to run out of steam. You need to have other goals beyond making bank or you’ll lose your soul (and maybe your sanity) in the process.
